An Edgewood man has been arrested and is being held without bail on attempted murder charges in connection with a June 2012 shooting less than a mile from his house.

Demetreis Demarkus Robinson, 23, of the 1300 block of East Spring Meadow Court, was ordered held without bail by District Court Judge Mimi Cooper at a bail review hearing in Bel Air Monday.

Robinson is charged with attempted first-degree murder, attempted second-degree murder, first-degree assault, second-degree assault and use of a firearm to commit a violent crime in the June 27 incident.

Wounded in the shooting, which occurred in the 1700 block of Fountain Rock Way, was 32-year-old Jemar Hunt, who survived his wounds, Harford County Sheriff's Office spokesman Eddie Hopkins said Monday about Robinson's connection to the case.

Another man, Charles Robert Pugh, 20, of the 3400 block of Landsdowne Court, was also arrested shortly after the crime. He also is charged with attempted first- and second-degree murder, first- and second-degree assault and the use of a firearm in a felony violent crime.

At the time, a Sheriff's Office person said police did not believe the shooting was a random act of violence.

Robinson was on probation for possession of drugs with intent to distribute at the time he was arrested on the attempted murder charges, an assistant state's attorney said during Monday's bail hearing.

Cooper cited 10 prior arrests and six convictions for Robinson, including driving with a revoked license, driving with a suspended license, escape and three failures to appear in court.

Public defender Sarah Klemm said she did not have a chance to speak with Robinson earlier that day but noted he is a lifelong Harford County resident.
