A man has been arrested and charged with attempted murder and assault in connection with an incident near Aberdeen late Thursday night that involved shots being fired, the Harford County Sheriff's Office said.
Anthony Tyrone Lucas, 28, who has no fixed address, is charged with three counts of first-degree assault, attempted murder, use of a handgun in commission of a felony, reckless endangerment and making a false statement to police, Edward Hopkins, spokesman for the Sheriff's Office, said Friday morning.
During a bail review hearing Monday in Harford County District Court, Lucas said he lives with his grandmother in Aberdeen and is disabled.
Judge David Carey asked how he was disabled and Lucas indicated he had trouble with his arm, although it was not clear what exactly the trouble was.
Lucas appeared in court via video link from the Harford County jail; he was represented by county Public Defender Brian Cunningham.
Carey ordered that he continue to be held without bail at the Harford County Detention Center.
Hopkins said deputies were called to a home 1300 block of Loflin Road, which is just south of Aberdeen, around 11 p.m. following a report of an altercation that involved shots being fired.
Deputies learned Lucas had allegedly confronted another man, 29, who was visiting the home of a woman who also knows Lucas, Hopkins said.
An argument ensued and Lucas allegedly fired several shots at the other man before fleeing, Hopkins said. He was arrested at the Holly Hill Motel a short distance away.
The man Lucas allegedly shot at was not injured, nor were several other people who were in the house, Hopkins said.
Lucas also has an outstanding warrant for a probation violation, Hopkins said.
