Man pleads guilty to killing near bar

A Baltimore man pleaded guilty yesterday to second-degree murder in a fatal shooting outside a Randallstown sports bar in June, Baltimore County prosecutors said.

Derrick Styberson Ross, 22, admitted firing six shots into a car being driven by a man he had argued with at the Rush Hour Sports Bar and Grill on Liberty Road, according to a statement of facts read in court by Assistant State's Attorney Charles R. Gayle.

Kitredge Brown, 22, of Randallstown was fatally shot June 9 as he attempted to drive a 1996 gold Ford Thunderbird out of the bar's parking lot. He died at Maryland Shock Trauma Center.

Ross is scheduled to be sentenced in July in Baltimore County Circuit Court.

As part of a plea agreement, he could receive a prison term of 20 to 30 years.
