A Columbia man has been indicted on a charge of attempted first-degree murder, accused of fatally shooting a 15-year-old boy in the head during a robbery attempt.
Dominique Davon McDonald, 18, was arrested in the incident, which police said occurred in the area of Clock Tower Lane in Columbia about 1 a.m. Aug. 27.
McDonald is being held without bond. He also was indicted on first-degree assault and reckless endangerment charges.
Also last week, the grand jury indicted Gregory Imes Jr., a Columbia man accused of breaking into the home of his ex-girlfriend's mother and stabbing her and her fiance.
On Sept. 27, according to police, Imes broke into the home of Maria Elana Cokely and attacked her and Reginald Crudup in the 10300 block of Twin Rivers Road in Columbia about 6:15 a.m. The couple were stabbed several times before the attacker fled, police said. Imes is accused of committing the crime while out on bond in connection with a robbery in July.
Imes, 26, was indicted on charges of armed robbery, first-degree assault, theft and handgun use. He was being held without bond, said a spokesman for the Howard County state's attorney's office.
Kwame Arnez Bright, 18, and Darryl Christopher Allen, 17, were also indicted by the grand jury, in connection with a carjacking last month in Ellicott City that prompted two nearby schools to be locked down.
According to charging documents, Bright, Allen and another juvenile ordered a man to get out of his car, which was parked near his home on Coachlight Lane. The car was found abandoned shortly afterward, police said.
Allen, who police believe was the driver of the stolen car, was being held on a $300,000 bond. Bright was being held on a $25,000 bond. The grand jury indicted both on several charges, including robbery, assault and unlawfully taking a motor vehicle.
