COLUMBIA, Md. — Howard County police have charged two suspects connected to a December 2020 deadly shooting that took place on the parking lot of the Mall in Columbia.

Angelo Deans, 17, is charged as an adult and is accused of for the murdering 20-year-old Anthony Patterson, of Owings Mills, in front of the Main Event entertainment venue.

Police believe 29-year-old Charles Thomas Busey, of Washington, D.C., drove Deans away from the scene.

Patterson apparently had a brief verbal altercation with Busey outside of the venue, and a short time later Deans shot him.

Both are currently being held in Washington, D.C.
