A man who was paralyzed when he was shot in 1990 was shot to death Saturday night as he and two friends were talking on a West Baltimore street, police said yesterday.

Reginald Roane, 29, of the 3600 block of Garrison Blvd., who used a wheelchair, and two male friends were talking in the 1900 block of W. Lanvale St. about 11: 30 p.m. when a masked gunman came out of an alley and shot Roane several times in the chest, police said.

A friend, Raymond Faidley, 18, of the 1700 block of N. Washington St., was shot in the left calf, police said.

Police said Roane and Faidley were taken to Bon Secours Hospital, where Roane died a short time later and Faidley was in stable condition yesterday.

Police said the gunman fled north on Appleton Street, after throwing away the handgun and a black mask. Police recovered both items.

Police had no suspect and knew of no motive for the shootings.

Yesterday, James Roane said his son was shot nearly eight years ago and the bullet severed his spine.

"After two years of rehabilitation, he was able to do a few things for himself but needed a wheelchair to get around," the father said.

In an unrelated shooting Saturday, Detective Albert Marcus said Anthony O. Jennings, 23, of the 300 block of E. 20th St. was charged in a warrant with first-degree murder in a fatal shooting that occurred about 10 p.m. in the 400 block of E. 20th St.

Dominic A. Wadrick, 21, of the 2500 block of Seamon Ave. in Cherry Hill was fatally shot, Marcus said.

He said a man had fought with Wadrick's brother the day before and intended to kill him, but mistook Dominic Wadrick for his brother.

"He thought he was gunning the one who beat him up, but he got the wrong one," Marcus said.
