Murder Charge Dropped But Several Charges Added Against Glen Burnie Teen

Prosecutors say Daniel Alex Savage was part of a "crime spree" in the days prior to the Pasadena shooting that left one man dead.

Prosecutors announced Thursday that they dropped murder charges against Daniel Alex Savage, one of the two suspects arrested after a fatal Pasadena shooting in October, but Savage's bail was not changed Friday because police are now charging him with armed robbery, second-degree assault and credit card theft, according to The Capital-Gazette.

Prosecutors say Savage, 18, of Glen Burnie, was part of a "crime spree" linked to a carjacking and a robbery, and he has admitted to being inside the vehicle during the time of the Oct. 13 shooting, according to the report.

Still facing murder charges is Ronald Lee McLeod, of Columbia, who also was arrested in the shooting at a Pasadena house party that killed Matthew Morrow, 21. McLeod is charged with first-degree murder and related  charges in connection with the shooting.

a f---ing plea bargain??? wtf so now no one will ever know what really happened

Aunt Sioux, it is not a plea bargain. They are charges separate from the murder. The other suspect is still facing murder charges, so his case could still shed light on the Pasadena incident.

These little special snowflakes are enough to make you understand why some animals eat their young... My 66 year old father was attacked by one of these little thugs while getting gas at 1pm in broad daylight at a busy station. No one helped, no one did anything leaving my 63 year old mother with stage 4 cancer who weighed all of 72 pounds at the time to jump out and smack him in the back of the head with her tiny hand while he slammed my father's head into the concrete. The police response when they showed up 20 mins later, well, he ran into the apartments behind the gas station, we'll never find him-gee mister, we hope your VA benefits will cover the hospital treatment. It's getting so bad around here with car jackings, armed robberies, rapes, open air drug markets, prostitution rings, you name it! Thank you light rail and the section 8 mandated housing! You've turned what was a decent working class area into a little Baltimore.

PAmthemoderate I can't agree with you more. It all stems from parents raising kids with NO RESPECT or MORALS! If my kid even thought about doing something like this I'd whoop their tails so fast they wouldn't even remember what that thought was. Its sickening to see the young adults and watching the sheer disrespect for everything and then when their kids get shot or robbed it all because of the police and government not giving them enough. Little Baltimore? LAUGH OUT LOUD there's 2 schools in Baltimore one is called Homeland Security and the other is Social Security. They teach the little thug and thugettes how to do the basics then hand them jobs in our government the same one that causes their problems. Has anyone been to a government office lately and tried to get anything done there? It's like no one wants to work anymore they just want a check given to them.
