2 slaying suspects held without bail


Two of the three teen-agers charged in the slaying of Baltimore police Officer Herman A. Jones Sr. were ordered held without bail yesterday by a District Court judge.

The third suspect remained hospitalized under police guard.

Judge Carol Smith denied bail for Herbert "Squeaky" Wilson of the 2100 block of E. Biddle St. and Clifton "Chip" Price of the 1600 block of N. Montford Ave., both 17, and ordered them held at the Baltimore City Detention Center.

The third suspect, Derrick N. Broadway, 16, of the 1800 block of Aiken St., is in stable condition at Johns Hopkins Hospital with bullet wounds to the chest and shoulder suffered in a shootout with Officer Jones, police said.

Each suspect has been charged as an adult with first-degree murder, armed assault and robbery, and use of a handgun in a felony, police said.

Officer Jones was at a carryout Wednesday in the 1900 block of N. Gay St. when the three youths attempted to rob him and he drew his service weapon to defend himself, police said. He was shot twice and died two hours later.
