Po­lice have ar­rested and charged a sec­ond sus­pect, a 17-year-old boy, with at­tempted mur­der for an April 29 shoot­ing in Wal­dorf. His ar­rest comes shortly af­ter the ap­pre­hen­sion of a 15-year-old boy who in­ves­ti­ga­tors be­lieve set up a drug trans­ac­tion with the vic­tim with the in­tent of steal­ing a large sum of cash af­ter the vic­tim was shot in the head.

The al­leged gun­man, Glenn Wade, 17, of Wal­dorf and his re­ported ac­com­plice, Mar­cell Bryan Hem­s­ley, 15, of Ac­co­keek have both been charged as adults and are be­ing held without bond.

On April 29 around 9:11 p.m., Charles County Sher­iff’s

Of­fice deputies were dis­patched to the BP gas sta­tion at 10195 Berry Road to as­sist the man bleed­ing from a gun­shot wound. The shoot­ing oc­curred shortly be­fore in the 2200 block of Bri­dle Path Drive, about 2 1/2 miles away.

De­spite the wounds to his head and neck, the 29-yearold vic­tim man­aged to drive him­self to the gas sta­tion to seek help. The man was bleed­ing pro­fusely and looked like he was los­ing con­scious­ness when po­lice and EMS per­son­nel ar­rived on the scene, ac­cord­ing to a gas sta­tion em­ployee.

Shortly af­ter the first-re­spon­ders ar­rived, the vic­tim was air­lifted to a hospi­tal in crit­i­cal con­di­tion.

De­tec­tives later in­ter­viewed the vic­tim who ex­plained how the shoot­ing un­folded.

In­ves­ti­ga­tors de­ter­mined that Hem­s­ley asked the vic­tim to pick him up on Bri­dle Path Drive and give him a ride. Once the vic­tim ar­rived, Hem­s­ley got into the pas­sen­ger seat of the car for what was sup­posed to be a mar­i­juana trans­ac­tion, a press re­lease states. Mo­ments later, Wade walked up to the car and, without say­ing a word, al­legedly shot the vic­tim in the head at point-blank range, court records in­di­cate. Hem­s­ley then re­port­edly tried to reach into the vic­tim’s pock­ets but was un­able to steal any money. He then got out of the vic­tim’s car and en­tered a ve­hi­cle with Wade and drove off.

The vic­tim had ap­prox­i­mately $1,300 in cash when he was shot.

Wade and Hem­s­ley re­main in cus­tody to await a pre­lim­i­nary hear­ing on May 20, court records show.
