A man with a handgun tucked into the waistband of his trousers robbed a Pasadena gas station late Saturday of an undisclosed amount of cash and cigarettes, county police said.

The man entered the convenience store at the Amoco station in the 300 block of Mountain Road about 10: 25 p.m. and appeared to wait for customers to leave before walking to the front counter, police said. He lifted his shirt to show employee Joseph E. Aaron, 45, a handgun in his waistband and demanded money and cigarettes.

After Aaron turned over the money, the robber fled and was last seen running up Solley Road toward Freetown Road.

Police arrest tenant in shooting of landlord

County police have charged a Pasadena man with shooting his landlord Saturday after an argument over her refusal to cook for him.

Sherry Keemer, 36, was decorating her house in the 300 block of Argyle Road for Christmas about 10 p.m. when her tenant came upstairs from his basement apartment and started yelling at her, police said.

The man then got a .22-caliber rifle from his apartment, walked outside to the west end of the house, where he climbed on an air conditioning unit and shot Keemer in the thigh through a bedroom window as she talked on the phone, police said.

Officers Thomas Breig and Edward Anthony were called to the scene at about 10: 15 p.m. and stopped a man walking north on Argyle Road.

Someone in the house identified the suspect, and police found the rifle in his apartment, said Officer Carol Frye, a police spokeswoman.

Thomas William Ennis, 55, was charged with first-degree assault and reckless endangerment and was being held in the county detention center yesterday on $100,000 bail.

Keemer was listed in stable condition yesterday at North Arundel Hospital.
