Suspect to be arrested upon release from hospital


Baltimore County police said yesterday that they plan to arrest, upon his release from the hospital, a man who was shot in the buttock Monday by a witness who said he saw the man burglarizing a Lansdowne home.

Vander Davis Jr., 36, of the 2500 block of Ridgely St. in Baltimore was being watched by correctional officers at the University of Maryland Medical Center, where he was being treated last night, police said. His injuries are not life-threatening, police said.

An arrest warrant charges Davis with burglary, second-degree assault, malicious destruction of property and theft in an incident Monday afternoon.

The co-owners of a liquor store in the 2200 block of Hammonds Ferry Road saw a man walk up the driveway of a home across the street and alerted the homeowner, who had been working in his garage, police said.

As the three approached the house, a man burst through the screen door, dropped a purse and ran away, police said. One of the liquor store owners fired a shot, police said. The county state's attorney's office will determine whether the shooter will face charges, police said.
