Glen Burnie man critical after Wednesday shooting

A 22-year-old Glen Burnie man was in critical condition last night after being shot outside his home late Wednesday, Anne Arundel County police said.

Matthew Alan Harrison was shot once in the upper torso as he stood outside his home in the 6500 block of Bricktown Circle, police said.

Witnesses said two men approached Harrison about 11:30 p.m. One produced a gun and shot him, and the pair fled in a dark-colored Ford Escort that had been parked nearby, police said.

Anyone with information is asked to call detectives at 410-222-3458.

Mural painted on building in Annapolis to be removed

A recently painted mural on the back of an Annapolis skateboard shop will be removed at the request of the building owner.

Artists painted a scene depicting women and mountains on the back of Asylum in the 100 block of Main St. last week. But the building's owner, Dimitri Sfakiyanudis, said he didn't give the artists permission to paint the mural and he wants it removed. The store's owner is going to pay to have it removed.

The building is in the city's historic district, but the mural cannot be seen from Main Street. City officials said they have not issued any citations or fines to the building owner or artists.
