Anne Arundel County police released the name yesterday of the man fatally shot by a 26- year-old woman after police say he and another man broke into her Pasadena home early Tuesday morning.

Calvin Dexter Booker Jr., 22, of Randallstown died from multiple gunshot wounds to his upper body, police said.

The woman, who was alone at her Fox Court home, pulled a gun from her dresser after two men walked through her unlocked front door, entered her bedroom and demanded cash and jewelry, police said. She told police that both were armed with guns and that she shot one of the men several times as the other fled.

Police said they recovered a .45-caliber semiautomatic handgun, believed to be the woman's, and another handgun, which does not belong to any of the residents. The woman has not been charged.

A small amount of suspected drugs was found on the body of Booker, who was identified through fingerprints, said Officer Charles Ravenell, a police spokesman.

Police are searching for the other man, whose identify is unknown. Authorities said they are not releasing the woman's name because they fear for her safety.

Booker had a trial scheduled for March in Baltimore for drug charges stemming from a June 2001 arrest, according to court records.
