September 18, 1996|By TaNoah Morgan | TaNoah Morgan,SUN STAFF

Police are continuing their search for a second man they believe was involved in a bungled robbery attempt Sunday night that led to the shooting death of a Glen Burnie restaurant supervisor.

Betty Lou Johnson, 48, of the 7900 block of Telegraph Road in Severn was shot once in the chest after she found two men hiding in a kitchen storage area at the Old Country Buffet, county police said.

Shelton Lamont Wood, 22, of the 2400 block of E. Oliver St. in Baltimore and Tia Moique Evans, 18, of the 3000 block of Southland Ave. in Baltimore were charged with murder Monday.

Police say Evans, a restaurant employee, let her boyfriend Wood and another man into the restaurant at Ritchie Highway and Ordnance Road about 9 p.m., after it had closed for the evening, so that the men could rob the business.
