As the Howard County trial of a man accused of shooting a police officer began Tuesday, federal authorities also waded into the case by filing a gun charge against the defendant. State authorities are seeking to prove Stephon Prather, 30, exchanged gunfire with police in October wounding officer Steven Houk. Prather, who police said opened fire without warning, was on the loose overnight after the shooting but was eventually arrested near the scene on Route 1. Prather was himself hurt and was walking with sticks serving as makeshift crutches when police found him, according to court documents.

Howard County police found the convicted felon wanted in the shooting of an officer as the man limped along U.S. 1 Thursday morning, concluding a manhunt that had begun the day before while authorities canvassed the area. Stephon Prather, 29, was found walking with the help of two sticks near the spot where police said he exchanged gunshots Wednesday with three officers. Authorities said he had been shot twice in the legs and believe he spent the night in a storm drain where investigators later found a gun. Prather's capture came after hundreds of officers — including aviation, canine and foot patrol units — scoured a half-mile-wide wooded area along the busy thoroughfare in Laurel.
