Frostburg college student in custody in double shooting

April 18, 2010

A Frostburg State University student is accused of shooting two fellow students, one of them fatally, with a shotgun after a fight that began at an off-campus party.

Police say 21-year-old Tyrone Hall of Glen Burnie has been charged with first-degree murder and first-degree attempted murder.

Hall is accused of firing two rounds from a 12-gauge shotgun, striking two of his fellow students in the abdomen. Twenty-year-old Brandon Carroll of Waldorf was killed. The other victim, 21-year-old Ellis Hartridge Jr. of Washington D.C., is expected to survive.

Police say Carroll and Hartridge were part of a group that went to Hall's home to confront him around 4 a.m. Sunday after he allegedly assaulted a woman at a party earlier in the evening.

Hall remained in his home after the shooting until police arrived.
