January 08, 1999|BY A SUN STAFF WRITER

A 19-year-old Baltimore man is wanted by Howard County police in the shooting of a pizza delivery driver in Harper's Choice last week.

Charles A. Mosley is charged in an arrest warrant with 26 counts, ranging from attempted first-degree murder to violating a county ordinance, police say.

Police say Mosley and another man are accused of luring two Papa John's employees to an apartment complex Jan. 1, robbing them and shooting Martha Lunsford, 30.

Each employee was robbed of $20 before Lunsford was shot in the jaw.

She was released from a hospital Sunday.

In the months before the shooting, police sent notices to food delivery businesses offering tips on how to deter robberies.

On Jan. 1, Lunsford did not follow procedures, police say. She called the number that Papa John's received through caller ID, but that phone did not accept calls.

The number was for a pay phone at a gas station, police say.

Lunsford then tried the number left by the customer. But that number belonged to a cellular phone that was out of service, police say.

Lunsford and an unidentified employee, driving another car, delivered the pizza.

Police say Mosley should be considered armed and dangerous. Anyone with information is asked to call police at 410-313-4760 or Metro Crime Stoppers at 410-276-8888.
