ABERDEEN, Md. (WMAR) — Two teenage brothers from Havre de Grace have been charged as adults after a drug deal led to gunfire earlier this week.

Aberdeen Police were first called to the 2000 block of Rock Glenn Blvd at around 10:30 p.m. Monday.

A 16-year-old reported that he and a 20-year-old friend came to the area to make a drug deal, when they were robbed.

Two teens armed with a revolver and pistol came up to the victims and tried robbing them.

As the 20-year-old victim tried running to his car, he was allegedly shot at by one of the suspects. The 16-year-old was then robbed at gunpoint of his shirt, shoes, and cell phone.

Both suspects then fled at which point the 16-year-old went to a nearby home for help.

Detectives quickly identified 16-year-old Lucas Alan Clark and Ethan James Clark, 17, as the suspects.

On Thursday, police carried out a search warrant in the unit block of Walnut Lane, and found a loaded Smith & Wesson .38 Special Revolver matching the description of the gun used in the robbery.

Police also found two pellet guns, used and unused ammunition, and drugs.

Both Clark brothers are being held with no bond at the Harford County Detention Center.
