Anne Arundel police are looking for a 19-year-old in connection with the fatal shooting of a man who tried to stop a restaurant robbery in Glen Burnie.

Authorities have an arrest warrant for Willie Antonio McLean for his alleged involvement in the Nov. 12. attempted robbery and homicide at Mr. Wings & Pizza, 7622 Baltimore Annapolis Boulevard in Glen Burnie.

When several armed, masked men came into the restaurant and announced a robbery, customer Misael Abdias Flores told them to leave. One of the men then shot Flores.

Police say McLean frequents the Glen Burnie, Brooklyn, and Pasadena areas of the county.

They warn that anyone who comes in contact with McLean "should exercise caution." Anyone with information about McLean or the incident is asked to call detectives at 410-222-3566.

When they have a picture of you in the paper you might as well turn yourself in. You are done. And for what? If you are going to be a criminal try embezzling money. No one gets killed and you do less time when you are caught. No one gets rich robbing Pizza and wing restaurants. They just get caught, convicted and sentenced. And probably raped.

Another wannabe tough guy with zero brain cells. Never to early to ruin your life. What took him so long? I hope he got a bucket of wings out of it.

I hope Willie enjoys the sex life behind bars. He's kinda cute.

Lemme take a wild guess. His Moms dropped out of high school & got pregnant with him.

I hope Willie enjoys the sex life behind bars. He is kinda cute. Dreamy eyes.

Lemme take a wild guess. His "Moms" dropped out of high school & got pregnant with him. Pops is somewhere in the continental USA.

The new Willie Horton! Just keeping it real.

My take is that he probably comes from a good home with both parents (probably a step father); probably sent him to private school too, but he felt out of place socially and he just wanted to fit in, belong so he took up with a group of thugs (gang), who readily accepted him. One evening they decided to rob a carryout for some extra one was supposed to get hurt. Too bad that someone decided to challenge a group of stupid youth with a gun; and too bad this stupid kid is going to do life in the pen for trying to belong.

Where'd the picture come from. It doesn't look like high school year book...more like a mug shot from a previous altracation with the law. WaPo, care to elucidate? Does he have a record? For what?

Enough with your psycho-babble this kid is a thug. Most high-school age boys want to fit in. However, the overwhelming majority don't rob and kill to achieve this.

To wjc1va,if you notice the credit below the photo, it says "Anne Arundel Police" so it's probable this thug has a record unless the photo was provided to them by another party. Looking @ the pose, it looks more like a mug shot. Checking the MD Courts web site, there is a Willie A McLean, DOB 06/1963, who has at least 12 charges against him who could very well be his father. If it is, they can always say it was his fault because "poor Willie, Jr." came from a dysfunctional family & could be exonerated.

- to secretchimp "I swear, a black guy commits a crime and all of a sudden people are talking about chicken wings, his father being a career criminal, getting raped in jail, etc."

Um...I think they are talking about chicken wings because he was robbing a chicken wing place?
