Two 18-year-old men have been arrested in the fatal shooting of another man in Pasadena early Saturday morning, Anne Arundel County police said Sunday.

Ronald Lee McLeod, of Columbia, and Daniel Alex Savage, of Glen Burnie, have been charged with first-degree murder in the shooting of Matthew Morrow, 21, who died at an area hospital after being found with gunshot wounds in the 7000 block of Outing Avenue about 1:30 a.m.

Another man — whom The Sun confirmed to be mixed martial arts fighter Darren Costa, 20 — was also found shot and was taken to an area hospital with non-life-threatening injuries, police said.

Morrow and Costa were attending a house party and standing in front of the house when they were shot, police said.

A police investigation led to McLeod and Savage as suspects, and a warrant was issued for their arrest Sunday, police said.

Savage is being held without bond on charges of first-degree murder, attempted first-degree murder, second-degree murder, attempted second-degree murder, first-degree assault, and second-degree assault, police said.

McLeod faces the same charges as Savage, plus reckless endangerment and multiple handgun charges, police said.

Court records also show a separate warrant was issued for Savage's arrest Sunday for robbery, armed robbery, assault, theft, stealing another person's credit card, reckless endangerment and gun charges. Those charges relate to an incident that occurred Tuesday, records show.
