Third man involved in shooting

A man who was shot and killed Wednesday night in Southeast Baltimore's Perkins Homes neighborhood was seen firing his gun at another man who was wounded in the shooting, city police said yesterday.

A third man was shot in the left leg, police said. Police said they recovered a .40-caliber handgun from the man who died, identified yesterday as Marvin Lucas, 21, of the 3800 block of Belair Road.

Officer Nicole Monroe, a police spokeswoman, said a patrol officer heard the gunfire and rushed to the 300 block of S. Dallas Court, where Lucas was seen firing a gun at a 20-year-old man. That man left the scene after a woman put him into a car and drove him to Johns Hopkins Hospital, where he was treated for a gunshot wound to his right leg, Monroe said. Police did not release his name.

Police recovered a .40-caliber handgun that they said had been used by Lucas. They also found near the scene shell casings that had been fired from a different weapon, Monroe said.

While investigating the shooting, officers found the third man, a 20-year-old, sitting on the front porch of a nearby home with a gunshot wound to his leg.

Police are investigating, and no arrests had been made yesterday, Monroe said.

17-year-old arrested in gas station killing

A 17-year-old from West Edmondale has been arrested and charged in the fatal stabbing and attempted robbery of a man at a Catonsville gas station Saturday, hours before the victim's wife gave birth to their first child, county police said yesterday.

Daniel Eugene Thompson Jr. of the 1100 block of Granville Road near Edmondson Heights Park, was arrested about 7:30 a.m. yesterday at police headquarters in Towson during a police interview, police said. He was charged with first-degree murder and is being held at the county Detention Center in Towson without bail pending a bail review hearing before a District Court judge.

Police said Thompson is charged with killing Carlos Adolfo Santay-Carrillo, 19, of Catonsville during what police said was a botched armed robbery about 6 p.m. Saturday while the victim was buying gas at the Carroll Fuel station in the 5200 block Baltimore National Pike. Santay-Carrillo's wife, Claudia Sales, 23, was at home in labor, waiting for her husband to return and drive her to Howard County General Hospital.

Police said Santay-Carrillo was stabbed during a struggle with an attacker outside the gas station attendant's booth. His assailant escaped with no money or property. Witnesses called police and Santay-Carrillo was taken to Maryland Shock Trauma Center, where he died a short time later from multiple stab wounds to the chest.

When Santay-Carrillo failed to return home, his wife was taken by ambulance to the hospital, where she delivered a healthy son on Mother's Day. She named the boy Carlos, after his father.

Police said that the gas station had no video camera on the property but that a camera at a nearby business recorded a young male fleeing the station.

An intensive investigation, the videotape and a tip from an anonymous 911 caller led to the arrest of Thompson, police said. A search of Thompson's home turned up clothing matching those worn by the killer and recorded on the camera, police said.

Married in their native Guatemala, Sales and Santay-Carrillo moved to the Baltimore area about a year ago. She worked at a La Quinta Inn in Jessup and he worked as a groundskeeper at a nearby hotel.

Friends have set up a trust fund for Sales and her son at a local branch bank.
