One man is in the hospital recovering from a chest stab wound and another is being held without bond in the Harford County Detention Center after an early Sunday morning fight between the two men in Edgewood resulted in a day-long police pursuit, according to a news release from the Harford County Sheriff's Office.
Christopher McCullough, 20, of Abingdon, was arrested Sunday night for attempted first-degree murder and first- and second-degree assault, and—after a hearing before a District Court Commissioner—is being held without bond in the county detention center, according to the news release.
Darrius Cornell Johnson, 20, of Abingdon, is in critical condition. He was treated at the Upper Chesapeake Medical Center, then transferred to the University of Maryland Shock Trauma center, according to the news release.
The fight between Johnson and McCullough broke out at around 3 a.m. Sunday, witnesses said, in the 1300 block of East Spring Meadow Court, Edgewood. Police responded to a 5 a.m. call about the fight, but suspect and victim were gone from the area by the time police arrived. Twenty minutes later, police learned that Johnson had been admitted to the hospital with a chest wound, the news release stated.
Police detectives gathered enough information during the day to track down and arrest McCullough that evening in the 600 block of Yorkshire Drive in the Harford Square community, as McCullough attempted to run from the rear of a house in that block, the news release continued.
