2 students charged with bringing gun to North County High

Two freshmen at North County High School in Glen Burnie were charged yesterday with bringing a handgun to school, Anne Arundel County police said. It was the second such incident this month in the county.

Police said a 14-year-old female student showed a loaded .38-caliber revolver to several other students at North County High yesterday morning. The students reported the incident to administrators, who called police.

The girl told officers that her 15-year-old boyfriend had given her the gun "for protection" after he had a dispute with other students, said police spokesman Charles Ravenell.

Both were charged with possession of a firearm and other offenses as juveniles. The girl was released to her parents yesterday afternoon. The boy was in police custody, Ravenell said.

Last week, a freshman at Northeast High School in Pasadena was charged with bringing a semiautomatic handgun to school. That weapon was unloaded.

Also yesterday, a 16-year-old sophomore at Old Mill High School in Millersville was arrested and charged with disruption of school activity and possession of a concealed weapon, authorities said. That boy was carrying a cap gun in his waistband, police said. He was released to his parents.

Police continue search for slain woman's car

Police continued to search yesterday for the car that belonged to a Glen Burnie woman who was found fatally shot and beaten with her daughter-in-law this week.

The missing vehicle is a black 2000 Monte Carlo with Maryland license tag JYZ 800, police said.

The bodies of Laverne May Browning, 70, and Tamie Christine Browning, 36, were discovered Monday night in a another car's trunk, the younger woman naked. That car, an Oldsmobile sedan that belonged to Tamie Browning, had been abandoned in a Glen Burnie apartment parking lot. It has been seized as evidence.

Kenneth E. Abend, 39, who rented a room in Laverne Browning's house in the 200 block of Margate Drive has been charged with murder in the women's deaths. He was being held yesterday the Central Booking and Intake Center in Baltimore on an unrelated burglary and weapons charge. Although his bail is set at $5,000, he is also being held on a detainer stemming from warrants charging him with two counts of first-degree murder.

Driver of van involved in hit-and-run sought

Anne Arundel County police were searching for the driver of dark-colored Toyota van that hit a 24-year-old pedestrian early yesterday in Arnold. The driver fled the scene of the accident, leaving the seriously injured man in the road.

Shayne E. Schulze, of Gray Moss Court in Arnold, was hit by the van as he walked from the grassy median across the eastbound lanes of College Parkway near Deer Creek Run about 2 a.m., witnesses told police.

Schulze suffered head injuries and was flown to Maryland Shock Trauma Center in Baltimore, where he was listed in serious condition yesterday, authorities said.

Witnesses told police the van was black or dark blue, with silver or white trim about six inches wide on the side. Accident investigators suspect that the van has damage to its left front.
