Baltimore police are searching for a 19-year-old West Baltimore man charged with shooting a friend of his ex-girlfriend two weeks ago and then stabbing the woman and her mother on Wednesday.

Anthony Jamal Howard, of the 2300 block of Whittier Ave., has been charged in an arrest warrant with three counts of attempted first-degree murder. Police said they consider him armed and dangerous.

Sgt. Scott Rowe, a city police spokesman, said the first attack occurred March 8 in the 3400 block of Park Heights Ave. He said Damon Moore, a friend of Howard's former girlfriend, Tia Jones, was shot once in the chest.

Moore, of Northwest Baltimore, was listed in critical condition yesterday at an undisclosed hospital, Rowe said.

On Wednesday, Rowe said, Jones and her mother, Yvonne Jones, were attacked in their home in the 4500 block of Cedar garden Road in Southwest Baltimore.

Rowe said Tia Jones was stabbed in the chest, back, hand and leg and also was in critical condition at an undisclosed hospital. Her mother, Yvonne Jones, was stabbed in the hand and treated at a hospital and released, the spokesman said.

Police are offering a $2,000 reward for information leading to an arrest. People can call Metro Crime Stoppers at 410-276-8888.
