October 18, 1997|By FROM STAFF REPORTS

A Gambrills man was shot fatally late Thursday along Veterans Highway in Millersville after an argument at a nearby bar, Anne Arundel County Police said yesterday.

Police have issued a warrant for Nathan Genorris Brown III, 25, of the first block of Nancy Ave. in Millersville on charges including first-degree murder and assault with intent to murder in the shooting.

Authorities said Brown is driving a 1997 dark colored Dodge Dakota pickup truck with Maryland tags 95E188.

The victim, Jeffrey Watson, 19, of the 1000 block of Dicus Mill Road, and three friends police would not identify, were leaving Sherry's Place in the 700 block of Generals Highway before midnight when Watson's friends and another man at the bar argued.

The man pursued the four in a pickup truck as they drove away in their car, witnesses told police.

Minutes later the car pulled off the road in front of Gus' Getaway on Veterans Highway, followed by the truck. When Watson and one of his friends got out of the car, the man in the truck fired at them, hitting Watson once in the torso, police said.

Watson's friends drove him to police headquarters about a mile away, where he was flown by helicopter to Maryland Shock Trauma Center in Baltimore. He was pronounced dead at 1 a.m.
