A 36-year-old Catonsville man who was wounded in 2009 during a shootout with nearly a dozen police officers has been convicted by a Baltimore Circuit Court jury of attempted first-degree murder and other charges.

Bradrick T. Green, who has a long criminal history, was arrested Nov. 21, 2009, after police said he repeatedly fired a .45-caliber handgun toward 11 officers, some of whom had tried to pull over the hack, or unlicensed cab, in which he was riding on the 200 block of S. Athol Ave.

He then fled on foot and continued to fire, said the officers, none of whom was wounded. Police pursued Green and shot him in the stomach on Pen Lucy Road.

In addition to attempted murder, Green was convicted of first-degree assault, 12 counts of using a handgun in a crime of violence and various weapons offenses. Green could receive a maximum of 11 life terms plus 306 years when he is sentenced on Aug. 3.

Even then, Green will not be done with court appearances, all connected to what police said was a series of crimes that took place over a matter of days. He faces trial on Oct. 3 in the killing of a man in a Catonsville convenience store and the attempted murder of the store's owner, an incident that took place five days before the shootout the ended in his arrest.

In that case, Green has been charged in the Nov. 17, 2009, killing of Brian M. Meise, a 52-year-old customer at Yours Convenience Store, and in the wounding of Sudhir Shah, 55.

Green is also charged with attempted murder and carjacking in connection with a Nov. 20, 2009, incident on Ingleside Avenue in Catonsville. The victim, Tyrone Brady, was shot in the head and the arm but was able to run away from the scene and did not suffer significant injuries, according to John Magee, a prosecutor with the Baltimore County state's attorney's office, who intends to bring that case to trial May 11.
