Two brothers held without bail in Annapolis shooting

November 07, 2003|By Molly Knight | Molly Knight,SUN STAFF

Two Annapolis men are being held without bail at the county detention center after being charged with attempted murder, carjacking and first- and second-degree assault in connection with an Oct. 30 incident that left another man seriously wounded.

Twin brothers Donte and Dante Mitchell, 24, both of Copeland Street, surrendered to Annapolis police Wednesday morning, police spokesman Officer Hal Dalton said.

Police said the incident began when Rodney Wilson, 42, ran into two male acquaintances in the 1300 block of Tyler Ave. and offered to give them a ride.

After one of the men got into the car, the other stopped 19-year-old Corey Wallace and demanded his money. Wallace began to run, police said, and the man shot him in the back.

When Wilson heard the gunshot, he tried to flee in his car, police said. But the two men forced him at gunpoint to drive them to Madison Avenue, where they got out of the car and ran, police said.

After being treated for the gunshot wound, Wallace was released this week from Maryland Shock Trauma Center.

The Mitchell brothers turned themselves in at the urging of Alderman George O. Kelley Sr., a former Annapolis police officer, and their mother, with whom the twins have lived for the past year.
