A St. Mary’s man has been jailed on charges from a po­lice in­ves­ti­ga­tion of gun­shots fired Tuesday at a pedes­trian along Great Mills Road, and the sus­pect’s mother is ac­cused in charg­ing pa­pers of be­ing his get­away driver.

Devonte Arnez Shubrooks, the 24-year-old sus­pect listed in ear­lier court records as a St. Ini­goes res­i­dent, was ar­rested Wed­nes­day on charges of at­tempted first-de­gree as­sault and reck­lessly en­dan­ger­ing his al­leged tar­get from the high­way.

“Did I get him?” Shubrooks asked his mother, Sheila Lisa Miles, be­fore they rode away in a sport-util­ity ve­hi­cle, ac­cord­ing to charg­ing pa­pers filed by St. Mary’s sher­iff’s in­ves­ti­ga­tors.

The gun­shots missed Ste­fan Miles, who told re­spond­ing law of­fi­cers that he was on a side­walk in front of a McDon­ald’s res­tau­rant, lo­cated at the St. Mary’s Square shop­ping cen­ter off the high­way, when he en­coun­tered Shubrooks on the high­way, court pa­pers state, and they “be­came en­gaged in a heated ar­gu­ment on the side of the road.”

Shubrooks even­tu­ally got inside the SUV, be­fore he “opened the front pas­sen­ger win­dow and be­gan shoot­ing to­ward the vic­tim,” sher­iff’s de­tec­tive Cpl. David Alexan­der wrote in charg­ing pa­pers in the in­ves­ti­ga­tion.

Ste­fan Miles told po­lice that he was fa­mil­iar with Shubrooks “due to past is­sues and the fact they once resided in the same neigh­bor­hood,” court pa­pers state, and “the vic­tim was also able to iden­tify the driver of the [SUV] as the de­fen­dant’s mother.”

Shell cas­ings from a hand­gun were found at the scene, court pa­pers state, and the SUV later was lo­cated at a park­ing lot in St. Ini­goes, where Sheila Miles was taken into cus­tody by po­lice.

The 44-year-old Lex­ing­ton Park woman later was re­leased on a $2,500 un­se­cured bond to await a court hear­ing on charges in­clud­ing at­tempted first-de­gree as­sault and act­ing as an ac­ces­sory af­ter the crime.
