A 19-year-old man was arrested in the fatal shooting of another teen last month during a large party at a Catonsville Ramada Inn, Baltimore County police said. Savion Devante Moore, 19, of no fixed address, is charged with first-degree murder in the death of Kelvin Glasgow on Aug. 19, when police were called to 6422 Baltimore National Pike for a fight. Officers found Glasgow suffering from a gunshot wound in the rear parking lot, and he was pronounced dead on scene. Police said the party got out of hand, the hostess asked people to leave and several fights broke out in the parking lot. Police reviewed footage from hotel surveillance cameras that they said shows Moore firing the weapon.

Howard County police hope that the arrest of four robbery suspects charged in nine crimes since mid-August might curb a spate of armed holdups. The business and street robberies - the victims included a Krispy Kreme store, an Exxon station, a High's store, a Pizza Boli's and a Ramada Inn - were committed by a loosely associated group of young men, police said. Police spokeswoman Sherry Llewellyn said police believe the group committed the robberies impulsively, with whichever members of their social circle were available.
