Information was developed that the suspect in the shooting was in a home in Edgewater.  Officers responded to that home and at 5:25 a.m. Barnabas Offer, Jr., 25, of Annapolis exited the home and was arrested without further incident.  Offer, Jr., 25, was arrested for two counts of attempted murder and other related charges.  Offer will be transported to the District Court Commissioner for his initial hearing.
Two other people were arrested last night in the 1100 block of Madison St during the investigation into the shooting.  Craig Belt, 30, of Annapolis and Delvonta Wright, 25, of Severn were arrested and charged with handgun possession and fourth degree burglary after they were found in an apartment.  The apartment resident, who was not home at the time, said Belt and Wright did not have permission to be inside the home.  Officers obtained a search warrant for the apartment and a handgun was recovered inside.  It is unknown at this time if this is the weapon used by the shooter. Belt and Wright will be transported to the District Court Commissioner for their initial hearings.
This is an active and fluid investigation and we urge anyone with information about this incident to contact our detectives at 410-260-3439.
