A 29-year-old Westminster man accused of critically wounding a Sykesville man outside an Eldersburg restaurant early yesterday was arrested eight hours later on attempted murder charges, state police said.
Igor Ivanor, of the 900 block of Wampler Lane, also was charged with assault, use of a firearm in the commission of a felony and related charges, police said.
He was being held without bond last night at the Carroll County Detention Center, pending a bail review hearing today in District Court.
James W. Manis, 30, of the 500 block of Manor Road, was flown to the Maryland Shock Trauma Center in Baltimore in critical condition after the 12: 19 a.m. incident, police said. He remained at the hospital yesterday in serious condition, a hospital spokeswoman said.
Police said the incident began Monday evening when a man was asked several times to leave K.C.'s Kafe on Liberty Road near Route 32.
According to Kevin Candrilli, the owner of the small family restaurant and bar, six to eight patrons were watching a baseball game on television.
"That's typical for a Monday evening," said Candrilli, who had taken the night off.
Candrilli, 41, said Ivanor was a first-time customer and that Manis apparently knew him.
"The guy was put out twice for being disorderly, and [another patron] hit him once after he resisted leaving," said Candrilli.
The business owner said Manis was acting as a peacemaker during the incident.
Investigators said the man eventually left the bar, driving away in a gray Lincoln Continental just after midnight, but returned minutes later and opened fire on a group of patrons in the parking lot. One shot struck Manis in the abdomen, police said.
Capt. Greg Shipley, a state police spokesman, said the suspect's identity was quickly learned and tactical squad members staked out the Wampler Lane address throughout the early morning.
When the man left the residence about 8: 30 a.m. yesterday, he was taken into custody without incident, Shipley said. No weapon has been recovered, he said.
Prosecutors say the case is the second shooting in Carroll this year. A 16-year-old Taneytown girl shot a friend in the leg with a .22-cal. rifle in January after he had dared her.
Two shootings were reported during the summer of 1995.
