Police arrest suspect in November shooting death

April 11, 2010

Police on Friday made an arrest in the November murder of a 21-year-old who was shot in the chest while walking his dog outside the Cherry Hill Homes public housing development. Police identified the suspect as Rodney Hall, 33, also known as Ronald Hall, of the 1100 block of Cherry Hill Road. He was charged with first-degree murder in the death of Angelo Dangerfield on Nov. 25 in the 2800 block of Spelman Road, police said. He was picked up Friday night in the 1100 block of Cherry Hill Road. Department spokeswoman Nicole Monroe could not give a motive or details about what led police to Hall. According to charging documents, a witness saw Hall and another man, Michael Robertson, 22, near Dangerfield when Robertson yelled at Dangerfield to keep his dog away. Dangerfield replied that the dog did not bite. The witness then heard two shots, according to the documents, and Robertson put a handgun into his waistband. When police arrived, they found Dangerfield shot in the chest with his pit bull, Princess, circling his body. Dangerfield, a Southwestern High School graduate, was working with the Baltimore housing department through its "Step Up" program, which provides training in building and rehabilitating local construction projects. Hall has been charged with multiple crimes, including drug and handgun possession and assault with intent to murder, for which he received a 10-year sentence in 1996.
