Glen Burnie man shot to death in Edgewood

May 16, 1999|By Kristine Henry | Kristine Henry,SUN STAFF

A 27-year-old Glen Burnie man was shot to death early yesterday and three others were wounded after an altercation at a townhouse in Edgewood, authorities said.

Several men left a gathering of about a dozen people in the 1500 block of Harford Square Drive after the argument. At least one of them returned with a handgun and opened fire on the group shortly before 2 a.m., said Lt. Robert P. Richick of the Harford County Sheriff's Office.

Officers, responding to a 911 call that reported gunfire and a woman screaming, found the victims in the house.

Richick said Julio Caesar Solis, 24, was shot in the foot, and Terry Lee Beck Jr., 23, was shot in the right thigh. The men, both of Aberdeen, were treated at Fallston General Hospital and released.

Shamil Azamba King, 21, also of Aberdeen, was shot several times and was transported to Maryland Shock Trauma Center. Hospital officials said last night he was in serious but stable condition.

Police did not release the name of the fourth man, who was shot twice and pronounced dead at the scene, because his family had not been notified.

Within an hour of responding to the shooting, officers stopped four men in a car that matched a description given by witnesses. One of the men, 21-year-old Mark A. Edwards of the 400 block of Joppa Farm Road in Joppatowne, was charged with first-degree murder, first-degree burglary, three counts of attempted first-degree murder and use of a handgun in commission of a felony.

The other three men in the car are under investigation, Richick said.
