Gun-incident suspect is held for evaluation

September 29, 2004|BY A SUN STAFF WRITER

A 62-year-old man accused of pointing a handgun at two teenagers near Wilde Lake High School is being held for evaluation at Howard County General Hospital, a county police spokeswoman said.

Edward Brown Jr. of the 10500 block of Jason Lane in Columbia was arrested Monday morning on the parking lot of the school and charged with first-degree assault and possession of a gun on school grounds.

Two teenagers had called police to report that a man in a Porsche had pointed a gun at them, police said.

Police and hospital officials declined to specify the type of evaluation that Brown was undergoing.

County court records showed that police issued an arrest warrant and charges against Brown on Monday, but he had not had a bail review hearing.
