City police charge suspect in after hours club shooting

A 26-year-old man has been charged in the after hours club shooting last month that left one man dead and others injured, according to Baltimore police.

Ricky Horton is charged in the death of Sean Rhodes, 25, of Franklin Square, who was one of three people shot early Jan. 13 at the Ras-a-Ter International Restaurant and Club at 2103 W. North Ave., police said.

Horton, of the 4900 block of Edgemere Avenue in Baltimore, faces first degree murder and assault charges.

The shooting occurred about 5:30 a.m. as people left the club, marking the second within 14 months, police said.

After the latest incident, the club's owner, Timothy Fraser, was charged with operating the restaurant as an illegal bar, failing to have a licensed security firm on site and violating capacity limits. The misdemeanor charges each carry a penalty of up to a year in jail.
