Baltimore County police have arrested two Baltimore men in connection with a double shooting in Catonsville on Monday that left one man dead and another wounded.

Jordan Nathaniel Jackson, 20, and Christopher Andre Williams, 30, were charged with first-degree murder and attempted first-degree murder, police said. They are being held without bail at the Baltimore County Detention Center. No lawyers were listed for either man in electronic court records.

About 6 p.m. Monday, a police officer heard gunshots near Johnnycake Road and Upper Mills Circle and found a man nearby who had been shot. The victim was taken to a local hospital for treatment, police said.

Another man, James Wesley Cornish, 23, of Baltimore was found dead inside a car on Upper Mills Circle.

Police said investigators determined that suspects fled in a red van. Officers later saw the van on Baltimore National Pike near Howard County and attempted to stop the vehicle, police said. The suspects tried to flee, police said, and crashed into several vehicles including patrol cars.

After the crash, officers arrested Jackson and Williams. Police said they found two firearms inside the van.

Police said they have not determined a motive for the shootings.
