Police have identified a third suspect in the shooting June 4 of two men at the Harford Square community swimming pool in Edgewood.

Police obtained an arrest warrant for Antonio Major Corprew, 17, a Harford resident of no known address, charging him with attempted first- and second-degree murder, assault and other charges, according to police.

Corprew was seen outside the swim club just before the shooting and was later seen getting into a black Chevy Impala with the other suspects, Anthony Mitchell and Lewis Cochran, according to police. Police said that while in the car Corprew got into an argument with the other occupants and is accused of threatening to kill them while holding a handgun.

Detectives recovered the black Impala but have not released details about evidence found in the car.

Police have distributed fliers and are offering a reward of up to $1,000 for the capture of Mitchell and Corprew. Cochran was arrested on a tip shortly after 5 p.m. June 5 while walking in the 1200 block of Brice Square in Belcamp. He is being held at the Harford County Detention Center.

The shooting occurred near midnight June 4 when shots were reported from the Harford Square community swimming pool.

Officers on the scene found Alysworth James, 33, and Josh Wary Barmer, 38, both of the 1300 block of Harford Square Drive, suffering single gunshot wounds to the upper torso.

The victims were treated at the scene and flown to Maryland Shock Trauma Center by state police MedEvac helicopter. Barmer has since been released while Johnson remains hospitalized.

Police believe that the shootings were retaliation for a fight between the parties the previous week, said Edward Hopkins, a spokesman for the sheriff's office.
