BALTIMORE COUNTY, Md. — Baltimore County Police say that they've charged three suspects in Saturday's Rockdale Terrace shooting.
Officers were responding to a call for shots fired in the area of Rockdale Terrace and Florida Road, shortly after 3 a.m., where they observed a vehicle matching that of one taken in a carjacking just over an hour earlier. Officers stopped the vehicle and confirmed that it had been taken from a man in the 6600 block of Dogwood Road, at around 1:50 a.m.
The victim, an adult man, was assaulted during the carjacking and ultimately transported to an area hospital for treatment of non-life-threatening wounds.
The suspects were taken into custody for the carjacking at that time.
However, a short time later, at a little after 3:30 a.m., police were dispatched for a shooting victim near the area where the call for shots fired happened. Officers located a man suffering from a non-life-threatening gunshot wound to the upper body. He was also transported to an area hospital for treatment.
Detectives from the Baltimore County Police Violent Crimes Unit determined that the same suspects responsible for the carjacking were also responsible for shooting the man during an armed robbery as he was walking home from 7-Eleven along Rockdale Terrace. They were trying to flee the scene of the shooting when they were stopped by officers who recognized the vehicle from the earlier carjacking.
The suspects, 30-year-old Brandon Antonio Muldrow, of the 2900 block of Rockroads Avenue; 28-year-old Eric Raymon Harrington, of the1900 block of Merritt Boulevard; and 19-year-old Adam Aria Arasteh, of the 15700 block of Ensor Mill Road, all remain held on no bail status following bail review hearings. They have also all been charged with the following:
- Attempted first degree murder
- First degree assault
- Use of a firearm in the commission of a felony/violent crime
- Armed robbery
