Mount Airy man convicted for role in drive-by shooting


A Mount Airy man was convicted Friday of taking part in a Jan. 8 drive-by shooting in which a Catonsville man was injured.

David William Doolittle, 29, of the 16000 block of Moss Meadow Way pleaded innocent to counts of reckless endangerment and transporting a handgun but allowed prosecutors to introduce a statement of facts with enough evidence to convict him.

Circuit Judge Francis M. Arnold sentenced him to a year in the Carroll County Detention Center and ordered him to serve five years on probation when he is released. He will be able to leave the county jail during the day to work.

A Carroll County grand jury returned indictments in January against Doolittle and Stephen Wayne Knight, 34, of Lawson's Trailer Park in New Market.

Both were charged with attempted murder, conspiracy to murder, assault with intent to murder, shooting with intent to maim, reckless endangerment, using a handgun in the commission of a felony, transporting a handgun and battery.

The charges stemmed from the shooting of Brian Keith Dehn, 19, pTC of Catonsville, who was treated at the Maryland Shock Trauma Center.

Investigators said the incident began with three men throwing snowballs at a home on Ridgeville Boulevard in Mount Airy.
