Original release (May 29):

Baltimore County Police have charged a suspect in connection with the August 2011 fire in Halethorpe that left a woman deceased. The suspect is the victim’s son.

On August 25, 2011 at 2:41 a.m., Baltimore County Fire and Police personnel responded to a home in the 2200 block of Alletta Avenue 21227 for a report of a fire. When fire personnel arrived on the scene, they found fire and smoke coming from the home.

When police arrived on the scene, they met with 58-year-old Robert McCann, a resident of the home who had been sitting in a vehicle in the driveway. McCann, who had minor burns and soot on his hands, clothing, and face, told them that his mother was still inside the home.

When firefighters searched the home, they found 90-year-old Edna Marie McCann in a bedroom. She was declared deceased at the scene.

The investigation of the fire by the Baltimore County Police Department indicated that Robert McCann had intentionally started the fire. A warrant was obtained for his arrest on May 14 of this year.

Robert McCann moved to Delaware after the fire. The Delaware State Police took him into custody Thursday morning. He is currently in Delaware awaiting extradition back to Maryland.

Baltimore County Police are investigating a Wednesday night shooting in Catonsville that left a man injured.

They went to an alley behind the Unit block of Briarwood Road 21228 to fight. While in the alley, one of the suspects displayed a handgun and demanded property from the victim. The victim was assaulted and received a graze wound to the upper body when the handgun was fired. The suspects then took property from the victim and fled the scene.

The victim was transported to an area hospital for treatment of his injuries and is expected to survive.
