The second suspect allegedly involved in a fatal shooting last week in the Towson area has surrendered, Baltimore County police said today.

Charles Michael Sealover, 23, of the 3400 block of Liberty Gardens Road in Milford Mill turned himself in to detectives Thursday afternoon. He has been charged with first-degree murder in the death of Shawn Thomas Shroyer, 25, of the 1600 block of Naturo Road in Towson.

The first suspect held in the case, Jacob Lee Schuster, 21, of the 16200 block of Dark Hollow Road in Upperco surrendered to police around 2 p.m. Tuesday after he learned of the first-degree murder charge against him, authorities said.

According to police, about 1 a.m. Saturday, Shroyer and the two suspects were arguing near the corner of Naturo Road and Loch Raven Boulevard, after which Shroyer was shot in the upper body. Police were still investigating what led to the argument. Department spokesman Officer Shawn Vinson said the three apparently knew each other.

After the shooting, Shroyer was taken to St. Joseph's Hospital, where he was pronounced dead.

Schuster is being held at the Baltimore County Detention Center on $100,000 bail. Sealover is also being held at the detention center after bail was denied, according to police.
