Teen charged, 2nd sought in Annapolis shooting

Police have arrested one teenager and are seeking another in an Annapolis shooting that was apparently in retaliation for a double homicide Nov. 16 in Odenton, police said. Dametres Maurekoe Short, 18, of Newtowne Drive in Annapolis was charged yesterday with attempted murder in connection with a shooting hours after four men were shot, two fatally, in a parking lot near Fort Meade. A warrant charging Rishard Richard Naylor, 17, with first-degree murder as an adult has also been issued. According to police, Maurice Lashern Brown was in the 800 block of Betsy Court when his girlfriend began receiving phone calls saying that Brown was in danger. Two men walked up to Brown and one said, "You are the reason my people got shot last night," according to police. Several shots were then fired, police said.

Dundalk man gets life in Dorchester murder

A Dundalk man has been sentenced to life in prison without the possibility of parole for his first-degree murder conviction in a Dorchester County homicide case. Brian M. Cotter, 21, of the 2800 block of Page Drive, was sentenced in Dorchester County Circuit Court last week for the slaying of 18-year-old Raymond Zubrowski, who also lived in Dundalk. Zubrowski's remains were found in April 2007 in a shallow grave near a hunting club in Toddville. Cotter was convicted by a jury in September.
