2 Annapolis men charged after shots are fired into home

Two men were arrested after Anne Arundel County police said two shots were fired into a home during a drive-by shooting early Saturday.

Jeffrey Dennis Small, 22, and Carl Maurice Kelly Jr., 23, both of the 400 block of Hammond Place in Annapolis, were charged with attempted murder, first-degree assault and possession with intent to distribute controlled substances, police said.

Police said someone fired shots into a house in the 900 block of Diggs Road about 2:30 a.m. Saturday. The residents, who had been sleeping inside, found a bullet hole in the front door and another in a window.

2 brothers arguing in street arrested after gun is fired

Two brothers were arrested after a Saturday-morning shooting in which a bullet missed by inches a woman who was lying in her bedroom talking on the phone, police said.

Joshua Lamont Evans, 18, and Granville Leroy Evans, 20, were charged with several offenses, including reckless endangerment and first- and second-degree assault, police said.

The brothers were arguing about 10 a.m. in the 5400 block of Sands Road when a neighbor tried to mediate their dispute, police said. Joshua Evans is accused of pointing a gun at the man's head, then pulling it away and firing a round that went into the house, police said.

The bullet flew above Esther V. Lane, across her room and through another wall into the hallway, where it ricocheted into a bathroom. Neither Lane nor the other two people home at the time were injured, police said.

Laurel, Millersville hotels robbed over weekend

Hotels in Laurel and Millersville were robbed during the weekend in two apparently unrelated incidents, police said.

About 12:30 p.m. Saturday, a man entered the Holiday Inn at 3400 Meade Road in Laurel and demanded that the hotel clerk give him money from the register. The man took the money and fled.

About 6:30 a.m. Sunday, the manager of Mainstay Suites at 120 Cochran Drive in Millersville entered the hotel's office and discovered a man examining the cash drawer. The man demanded the drawer and the manager gave it to him. When the man fled the hotel, the manager went outside and saw a white, mid-size minivan with no side windows quickly leaving the parking lot. Police said they were unsure whether the man was in the vehicle.
