A 13-year-old Bates Middle School pupil was charged as a juvenile after bringing a 3-inch folding knife to school Monday, Annapolis police said.

The boy, who was not identified because of his age, was charged with possession of a deadly weapon on school grounds. He was released to a guardian.

Police seek 2 who shot Hanover man at his house

Anne Arundel County police are searching for two men who shot a 19-year-old Hanover resident in front of his home last weekend.

Patrick Randall Jones was waiting for a friend at the bottom of his driveway in the 7300 block of Race St. when he was surprised by two men brandishing handguns, police said. The men walked the victim back to the residence and demanded cash. They then held one of Jones' friends at gunpoint, and when Jones tried to assist, he was shot three times.

Jones was taken to Maryland Shock Trauma Center, where he was in good condition last night, a hospital spokesman said. Police are interviewing more than eight witnesses who were inside the residence, but they have not made any arrests.

Anyone with information is urged to call Officer Keith Light at 410-222-6155.
