E. Baltimore man sought in Parkville attempted murder

December 09, 2009

Police were looking Tuesday for an East Baltimore man they suspect of trying to kill another man during a robbery gone awry last month in Parkville. Brandon Michael Thornton, 27, is accused of attempted murder in the shooting of a 33-year-old Baltimore man on the night of Nov. 8 outside the Welcome Inn on Loch Bend Drive. A man told police that two men had tried to rob him in the parking lot and fired several shots at him, but missed. Police described Thornton as black, 6 feet tall and weighing about 200 pounds. He has a tattoo that says "CHP" over his left eye and teardrops under the same eye. Baltimore County's newly appointed police spokesman, Lt. Robert McCullough, said that because the current case was still being investigated he could not discuss the second suspect.
