Gambrills man, 21, is charged in shooting


A Gambrills man has been arrested and charged with first-degree assault, reckless endangerment and other offenses after a Friday night shooting that injured a Severn teenager, Anne Arundel County police said.

Eric Allen Fletcher, 21, of the 800 block of Annapolis Road was identified by witnesses as the man who shot at a car that was traveling on Chapelview Drive in Odenton, according to Sgt. Shawn Urbas, a police spokesman.

The driver, Brian Bower, 19, of the 8200 block of Monhegan Court, was struck once in the upper left chest. He was taken to Maryland Shock Trauma for treatment and was later released.

Fletcher appeared at a bail review hearing before a District Court judge yesterday and is being held in lieu of $675,000 bond at the Anne Arundel County Detention Center.
