Anne Arundel County police arrested one man yesterday - and were looking for a second suspect late last night - in connection with a deadly shooting at a Crofton party last weekend.

Police arrested Nathaniel Campbell, 22, at his place of employment in Capitol Heights yesterday morning. An arrest warrant charges him with one count of first-degree murder.

Andre Summers, 27, of Bowie was fatally shot Saturday night outside his sister's home in the 2000 block of Lake Grove Lane.

Detectives were still searching last night for Anthony Lane, 38. An arrest warrant charges him with second-degree assault and three counts of conspiracy to commit first-degree murder.

Police said Lane crashed a party at his ex-girlfriend's home on Saturday, got into a fight outside and then ordered Campbell to get a gun.

Several shots were fired into the crowd, striking the ex-girlfriend, Michele Summers, and killing her older brother, Andre Summers, police said. A neighbor, Wayne Falduti, 28, also was wounded, according to police.

Falduti has said that Andre Summers was fatally shot after running outside to defend his sister.

After the shooting, which happened about 10 p.m. on a parking lot near Michele Summers' home, the two men fled in a vehicle, police said.

Police are not releasing a description of the vehicle or of either man, but Lt. Joseph Jordan, spokesman for the Police Department, said Lane should be considered possibly armed and dangerous.
