Second arrest made in Anne Arundel Co. police officer's shooting

Anne Arundel County police say a second suspect has been taken into custody in connection to the shooting of an officer outside an Annapolis 7-Eleven store on Friday morning. 

The second suspect has been identified as Danielle Nicole Blake, 29, of Severn. She is charged with conspiracy to commit following attempted first-degree murder, attempted second-degree murder, first and second-degree assault, reckless endangerment, and handgun use in commission of a violent crime.

Corporal Larry Adams, the injured officer, is a 10-year veteran of the force. He was assigned to the Patrol Services Bureau in Eastern District. 

Police have already charged 30-year-old Colvin Lamar White, of Annapolis, with attempted first-degree murder, attempted second-degree murder, use of a firearm in felony/violent crime, handgun on person, regulated firearm/illegal possession, conspiracy to commit robbery and conspiracy to commit armed robbery in connection to the shooting.

Police say the wounded officer came to the store on College Parkway East at around 2:20 a.m. Friday for a routine business check, and responded a report by a witness about a suspicious person outside of the store. When the officer approached the suspicious man, there was a fight and a chase before the suspect shot the officer in the upper body. The suspect then fled the area.

Corporal Adams was taken to Shock Trauma at the University of Maryland Medical Center in Baltimore where he had several surgeries. On Sunday, Cpl. Adams' condition was upgraded from critical to serious condition. 

Police say they will release more information about the second suspect's arrest during a Monday news conference.

White is currently being held in the Anne Arundel County Detention Center. 

Adams is the first on-duty Anne Arundel County police officer who has been shot since 2008.
