Third man arrested in Caroline party shooting
The third man wanted in a connection with a Caroline County shooting last week is in police custody.
Kwumane Goodall, 20, of Doswell turned himself in to Caroline authorities Monday, said Caroline Sheriff Tony Lippa.
Two brothers, Jujuan Morris, 21, and Jessee Rashaud Morris, 22, both of Ruther Glen, turned themselves in to police on Friday.
All three men are charged with malicious wounding, attempted malicious wounding and use of a firearm in the commission of a felony. The charges stem from violence at a house party last Wednesday where a woman was shot in the chest, Lippa said.
Lippa said deputies went to the shooting on Jocasta Avenue in the Elsinore subdivision in the southern part of the county, where they learned that multiple shots had been fired between three people at a large house party, Lippa said.
A 20-year-old woman was shot in the chest as she was trying to run from the area, Lippa said.
He said she was not believed to be the target. Police say the shootout was between the Morris brothers and Goodall.
The woman is expected to recover, police said.
