Police have arrested the 16-year-old wanted for a Saturday shooting at Arundel Mills mall, according to the Anne Arundel County Police Department.
Accompanied by his mother, Jamari Marquese Hammond turned himself into the county’s Western District Police Station at about 10:30 a.m. Tuesday, police spokesman Marc Limansky said. The Severn teen was wanted on attempted-murder and other charges in a shooting at the Hanover mall just before 7:45 p.m. Saturday.
He is being charged as an adult, Limansky said.
The shooting happened outside an entrance between Modell’s Sporting Goods and Books-A-Million during an argument between two groups of people.
A 19-year-old man, whose identity has not been released, was shot in the lower torso. His injuries were not life-threatening, police said.
Police said the alleged shooter and victim did not know each other, but they called the incident “targeted and isolated in nature.”
