Database leads to arrest

CRIME WATCH

January 18, 2006|By RICHARD IRWIN

Descriptions from witnesses entered into a database helped Baltimore County police arrest a suspect in the shooting of a female employee during an attempted store robbery Friday night. The victim was shot in the leg when she panicked and was unable to open the cash register during a holdup at Salvo Auto Parts in the 7000 block of Liberty Road, police said. The descriptions produced photos of five men, including Derek Lamont Murray, 27, who was arrested Monday night at his home in the 3600 block of Campfield Road in Lochearn and charged with attempted first-degree murder, attempted armed robbery and using a handgun in the commission of a felony, police said.
