Attempted-murder suspect arrested after visiting school

April 20, 2007|By Andrea F. Siegel

A man wanted on charges of attempted murder who went to an Anne Arundel County high school to look for a female student was arrested yesterday, Anne Arundel County police said.

Antonio Moore, 20, of Brooklyn Park was taken into custody about 1:30 p.m. on Holbrook Street in Baltimore. Lt. David Waltemeyer, an Anne Arundel County police spokesman, said Moore was driving a stolen car when he was apprehended.

Michael Francis, 21, the man Moore is accused of shooting and stuffing into the trunk of a stolen convertible Saturday night, is still missing. Francis' bloodstained clothes were found in the abandoned car.

Police also have not found 18-year-old Sierra Anderson, Moore's girlfriend, who police say was in the passenger seat that night.

An arrest warrant charges Moore with attempted first-degree murder, first-degree assault, two counts of second-degree assault, kidnapping, attempted kidnapping and two counts of reckless endangerment. He was being held without bail at the Anne Arundel County Detention Center.

Police said Moore entered North County High School in Ferndale shortly after 10 a.m. Wednesday asking to see a female student. His attire -- a woman's blouse and capri pants -- aroused the suspicions of the county police resource officer stationed at the school.

He tracked down the unidentified girl, who told him that she was not expecting a visitor or to be picked up, and their conversation suggested that the man in the lobby was Moore.

By the time the officer returned to speak with Moore, he had left. Eight public schools in North County were locked down for several hours while county police determined that Moore was not in the vicinity.

Anyone with information is urged to call 410-222-8610.
