A grand jury indicted a Frederick teenager charged with murder after a shooting during an after-prom party.

Ean Lanell Davis-Lattimore was indicted on second-degree murder and first-degree assault charges. The indictment was among eight returned by the grand jury on Friday.

Frederick police arrested Davis-Lattimore, 17, on May 13 after a shooting at a prom party left one girl dead and a boy injured. Police and prosecutors believe Davis-Lattimore fired the shots that struck the two people during a fight outside the party.

The second-degree murder charge carries a potential sentence of 40 years in prison.

The grand jury handed up seven other indictments, according to Frederick County State’s Attorney Charlie Smith.

  • Kevin A. Carbajal-Rivera, 24, of New Milford, New Jersey, was indicted on charges of second-degree rape, second-degree sex offense, sex abuse of a minor, and continuous sex abuse of a minor.
  • Gary Edward Barnett, 52, of Dundalk, was indicted on charges of armed robbery, robbery, second-degree assault, theft of $100 to $1,500, three counts of attempted robbery, attempted theft of $100 to $1,500, and theft of less than $100.
  • Clifton Bernard Bowens, 36, of Frederick, was indicted on charges of first- and fourth-degree burglary, malicious destruction of property less than $1,000, theft of less than $100, and second-degree assault.
  • Austin Somerset Mack, 26, of Thurmont, was indicted on three counts of distribution of carfentanil, heroin and furanyl-fentanyl.
  • Wayne Alan Thomas, 60, of Frederick, was indicted on two counts of sex abuse of a minor.
  • Luis Alonzo Palacios, 36, of Frederick, was indicted on charges of first- and second-degree assault, reckless endangerment, and malicious destruction of property less than $1,000.
  • Gary Gudon Crummel, 40, Frederick, was indicted on charges of first-degree assault and two counts of second-degree assault.

The cases against the defendants now move forward to Frederick County Circuit Court.

An indictment is not a finding of guilt, and defendants are presumed innocent until proven guilty in court.

"After prom" party sounds so juvenile and unprofessional. "Post prom" party is how it should be referred to. Ya gotta love them FNP interns.....
