Two charged in shooting of Domino's deliveryman; Delivery address matches vacant house near suspect


Two teen-agers were arrested early yesterday for allegedly shooting and robbing a Domino's Pizza deliveryman outside one of the suspects' homes in Carroll Park in Southwest Baltimore Saturday night, police said.

The deliveryman, Michael Vogel, 47, of the 4200 block of 6th St. in Brooklyn, was shot in the left buttock and was in stable condition yesterday at Maryland Shock Trauma Center, said Sgt. Scott Rowe, a police spokesman.

Police said Vogel went to the 1100 block of Sargeant St. about 8: 45 p.m. and found that the address for his delivery was a vacant house.

Vogel told police that two males, one armed with a handgun, approached and demanded money.

Vogel said he was shot from behind while walking away after he had given the robbers his thermal bag containing two pizzas, police said.

Shortly afterward, witnesses gave police information that led to the arrests, said Rowe.

Soon after midnight, police arrested Robert Dwayne Smith, 18, who lives in the same block in which Vogel was shot, and Willie Lee Andrews, 16, of the 900 block of W. Lexington St.

Police said Andrews, who was charged as an adult, and Smith are charged with assault with intent to murder, robbery with a deadly weapon, possession of a deadly weapon with intent to injure, theft under $300 and first-degree assault. They were being held at Central Booking and Intake Center pending a bail hearing tomorrow.
