Second man escapes from Mercy hospital

Hours after a murder suspect who had fled guards at Mercy Medical Center was captured, another man under arrest escaped from police yesterday at the hospital, authorities said.

Corey Antwon McMillon, who had fled the hospital Tuesday, was captured about 2 a.m. yesterday at a Rosedale motel, said Barbara Cooper, a spokeswoman for the state Department of Public Safety and Correctional Services. Just after 6 a.m., a man being escorted by police out of the hospital ran off, according to Officer Nicole Monroe, a city police spokeswoman.

The man told police his name was Carlos Green, 25, but police said that he did not complete booking, so the name had not been verified.

Police said that after the man was arrested Thursday on suspicion of drug violations and taken to the Central Booking and Intake Center for processing, he complained of a bruise and of being sick from drugs he had swallowed during his arrest.

A city police officer took the man to the hospital about 1:40 a.m., where he was treated. The man escaped while being led to a patrol car parked near the emergency room entrance on Calvert Street, Monroe said. The man's hands were secured from behind with plastic flex-cuffs when he ran off, she said.

McMillon, 28, who was awaiting trial on a charge of first-degree murder, had been in the custody of at least one city detention center officer when he left a hospital bathroom about 5:30 p.m. Tuesday, assaulted a guard and fled, authorities said.

Man accused in fatal shooting

A 24-year-old Baltimore County man was charged yesterday with murder in a shooting death in the Hillendale area, police said yesterday. Dontae Lamar Nicholas, 24, of the first block of Comet Court, was being held at the Baltimore County Detention Center without bail, charged with first-degree murder in the slaying Wednesday night of Montrell Dawaan Williams, police said. Williams, 21, of the 1400 block of Wentworth Ave., was at a party at an apartment in the first block of Dowling Circle when an argument broke out, police said. Police found Williams near the entrance of the apartment building with a shotgun wound to the chest. He died at Good Samaritan Hospital, police said. Police said they recovered a shotgun from Nicholas' home.
