Anne Arundel County police are searching for a 26-year-old Fort Meade man wanted in the shooting death of an Odenton liquor store owner and the wounding of three other people in August.

Authorities say Dean Lamont Prue Jr., whose last known address was in the 3500 block of Endel Court, is a suspect in the crimes, in which a gunman walked up to the counter of Tom's Liquor and Korean Restaurant with a semiautomatic weapon shortly before 7 p.m. Aug. 31 and opened fire on Thomas Sung Hall, 63, killing him. The gunman shot Hall's wife, Sue Jin Hall, 56, in the right leg.

As the gunman left the store in the 1500 block of Annapolis Road, he fired several shots at a van parked outside, wounding Michael Lee Couture, 30, in the right shoulder and Scott Marshall Neil, 41, in the left leg. All of the victims are from Odenton.

Anyone with information is asked to call Metro Crime Stoppers at 276-8888.
