Man's body found in abandoned rowhouse

Southern District police received an anonymous 911 call Wednesday afternoon, and when they entered an abandoned house in the Carrollton Ridge neighborhood they found the body of a man who had been shot, according to Agent Donny Moses, a city police spokesman. The man's name was withheld pending notification of family members and positive identification through fingerprints. Moses said the 911 call was from a police informant, and it led officers to a rowhouse in the 1900 block of Wilkens Ave. near South Monroe Street. He said the man appeared to be in his late teens or early 20s and had been shot in the head. It was not known how long the man had been dead. Police are investigating the man's death as a homicide and were awaiting the results of an autopsy by the state medical examiner's office.

Parkville man held in assault case

A Parkville man was being held at the Baltimore County Detention Center on multiple charges of assaulting police, authorities said. About 9 a.m. Tuesday, Officer Jeffrey Chilcoat of the Parkville Precinct was investigating a 1993 Dodge Shadow parked on Overland Avenue near Belair Road when he spotted a man and a woman apparently asleep on the rear seat. While interviewing the man, Chilcoat learned that he was wanted by county police on theft charges, and the officer called for additional units, police said. Three other officers responded. When Chilcoat attempted to arrest the man, police said, he became combative and assaulted Chilcoat and the other officers. The man was hit with a Taser gun and eventually subdued. Charged with four counts of assaulting police officers, resisting arrest, disorderly conduct and the outstanding theft offense was Joseph F. Bruno 3rd, 38, of the 7900 block of Bon Air Road.
