Randallstown man charged with murder in Columbia shooting


Howard County police have arrested a Randallstown man in connection with the fatal shooting two weeks ago of a man outside a Columbia apartment complex.

Christopher Cowan, 18, of the 5300 block of Old Court Road, was charged with first-degree murder, attempted murder and reckless endangerment Friday night, Howard County police said yesterday.

Cowan is charged with shooting Walter Scott Cook, 20, of Owings Mills, in the parking lot of the Waverly Winds Apartments on the night of Sept. 6. Scott died four days later at Maryland Shock Trauma Center in Baltimore. Cowan was also charged with shooting Damany Michael Huges, 24, who was grazed by a bullet during the shooting. He was treated and released that night.
