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.
