He is being held without bond at the Howard County Detention Center pending a review hearing scheduled for Wednesday and does not currently have an attorney listed in online court records.

Ngande was arrested Monday in the area of Little Patuxent Parkway without incident, police said.

Police learned Ngande and Dorsey, of Jessup, had an “ongoing dispute,” and that Dorsey, a friend and Ngande got into a fight in Ngande’s neighborhood Saturday.

Ngande reportedly went into his residence, retrieved a gun and fired multiple shots as Dorsey and his friend ran from the scene, police said.

Officers arrived at the scene and located Dorsey suffering from a gunshot wound. He was transported to the University of Maryland Shock Trauma Center in Baltimore, where he later died.

The investigation is continuing and anyone with information is encouraged to contact police at 410-313-STOP or HCPDcrimetips@howardcountymd.gov.
