September 09, 1998|BY A SUN STAFF WRITER

Howard County police have charged a Guilford man with attempted first-degree murder in a July shooting in which a couple sleeping in their North Laurel mobile home were injured.

Police arrested the man last week after a monthlong investigation into the incident in the first block of Cross St. at the Midway Trailer Park.

Darrin Bernard Ridgeway, 27, of the 9500 block of Glen Oaks Lane, is being held on a $100,000 bond at the Howard County Detention Center, officials said.

According to police, about 4: 50 a.m. July 22, someone fired three shotgun blasts through the wall of a mobile home at the Midway Trailer Park, striking Richard Morgan Kinney and Beth Ann Hanning in the legs.

The couple were treated and eventually released from Maryland Shock Trauma Center.

Police are investigating a similar shooting at a Savage mobile home park Aug. 19.
