Police have charged two suspects in the killing of a man in East Baltimore last month.

Dominic Deschamps, 31, and Che McDowell, 23, were arrested in the Aug. 5 shooting of 46-year-old Bruce Paige, police said.

At least one witness told police the two suspects ran up to Paige in the 500 block of N. Monroe St., Deschamps said "kill that [expletive]," and McDowell shot him in the head and torso, according to charging documents.

Detectives found blood smears and damage to a black Nissan Sentra parked at the scene, and a trail of blood down the street and a blue baseball cap where Paige had collapsed, the documents said. Despite medical treatment at the scene and at the University of Maryland Shock Trauma Center, Paige died from his injuries at 1:21 a.m., police said.

Deschamps and McDowell both face murder and related charges.

A public defender listed for McDowell could not be immediately reached Tuesday night. No lawyer was listed for Deschamps. McDowell has a court hearing on Thursday; Deschamps will appear on Sept. 29.
