ANNAPOLIS, Md. (AP/WBOC) - The man charged with shooting at drivers in Maryland and at a National Security Agency building is set to appear in an Annapolis court on Friday.
Hong Young is expected to have a bond hearing in Anne Arundel County District Court. He's charged with attempted murder and assault for a Feb. 24 shooting that injured a 61-year-old man near Arundel Mills mall.
The shooting was the first in a string of them reported in central Maryland in the past week. Neighboring police departments launched a large-scale manhunt, which ended Tuesday night when Young was arrested at Arundel Mills mall.
Anne Arundel County police report that Hong Young is now being held at the Jennifer Road Detention Center without bond. He was released from a hospital where he was receiving treatment on Wednesday.
Court documents show that Young told police that he heard voices telling him to shoot at a random driver last week. Police say he agreed to talk to them without an attorney present, and said the voices prompted the Feb. 24th shooting incident. Young also admitted his involvement in the other shootings, according to police. Police say they have his statements on camera.
No attorney is listed for Young in online court records.
