Police are seeking help in locating a Glen Burnie man sought in the February shooting of Benjamin Philip Evans at an Annapolis public housing complex.

An arrest warrant has been issued charging Derrick Lamont Brown, 21, with first-degree murder and other offenses related to the killing. Evans was shot Feb. 26 and died March 1, according to police.

Annapolis and Anne Arundel County police said they checked two addresses for Brown yesterday morning and didn't find him at either location. Police said in a statement that Brown has black hair and brown eyes, is 5 feet 11 inches tall and weighs about 160 pounds.

Evans was shot in the back early Sunday morning in Robinwood as he was on his way to his girlfriend's home, police said last week. Police distributed more than 150 fliers last weekend in the 1970s-era housing complex on Tyler Avenue, offering as much as $1,000 for information leading to an arrest in the case.

It was the third killing in Annapolis this year.
