A Howard County grand jury indicted a 16-year-old Columbia teenager on a slew of charges stemming from the attempted robbery and shooting at a security guard near the Long Reach Village Center in Columbia earlier this month.
Darnell Rasheen Furby was indicted Wednesday on charges of first-degree assault; theft of less than $500; second-degree assault; use of a handgun in the commission of a felony violent crime; and conspiracy to commit assault in the second degree.
A trial has not yet been scheduled.
Furby is one of three males arrested in connection with the crime. Rick Britton, 20, of Odenton, faces attempted murder, assault and attempted armed robbery and handgun charges. Derrod Peterson, 18, is charged with assault and attempted robbery
Police said they received a number of calls the evening of May 13 from people who heard a series of gunshots in the 8800 block of Flowerstock Row. Investigators arrived and discovered a 27-year old security guard who said he’d been confronted by three men and punched in the face. One of the assailants fired multiple shots at him as he fled, the guard told police. All of the shots missed. The men stole cash from his security vehicle, the guard said.
Police never identified the victim or said what he was guarding.
