Man charged in Frostburg State shooting claims self defense
A Frostburg State University student charged with murdering a school basketball player and wounding another told police he fired in self defense.
An Allegany County judge ordered Monday that 21-year-old Tyrone Hall of Glen Burnie would continue to be held without bond on charges of first-degree murder in the shotgun slaying of a fellow student.
According to charging documents, one of Hall's friends told police that he said he didn't have a choice about shooting the men. Hall told police that he went to his door carrying a loaded shotgun and fired after each of them lunged toward him.
Eleven relatives of Brandon Carroll, the student killed in the shooting, attended the bond review hearing. Hall told the judge he has not yet retained an attorney and he has not been able to get in touch with his family.
