CAMBRIDGE — A Hurlock man has been charged in the Christmas night shooting in Cambridge.

Cambridge Police arrested Charles B. Bibbs III, 42, about 11 a.m. Jan. 7. He is being held without bail in the Dorchester County Detention Center on charges of attempted first-degree murder, first- and second-degree assault, handgun and other related charges.

The charges stem from an altercation between two men that occurred about 9:30 p.m. Dec. 25 in front of the Elks Lodge on Pine Street. Bibbs ended up on the ground, where he pulled out a gun and shot the other man in the abdomen, according to Capt. Justin Todd.

The shooting victim was flown to University of Maryland Shock Trauma Center in Baltimore and is currently recovering from his injuries, Todd said.

A bail review for Bibbs is set for Friday morning, Jan. 8, in Dorchester County District Court. A preliminary hearing is scheduled for Jan. 20.

Cambridge Police are still looking for a suspect in a Dec. 21 shooting. A victim was found with a gunshot wound to their back about 8 p.m. on Leonard’s Lane. Their investigation determined the shooting took place in the Philip/Moore street area.

No suspect has been identified yet in the Oct. 25 shooting death of Khalil St. Croxie Reid, 21, of Laurel, Delaware. Reid was found lying on the ground in a grassy parking area in the 600 block of Chesapeake County. That case was turned over to Maryland State Police.

Police continue to look for Ryshon Kelly, 36, of Cambridge, who is wanted on a first-degree murder charge in the Oct. 24 stabbing death of Roderick Russ Jr., 28, also of Cambridge.

Police are also looking for Tiara Latanya Cromwell, 39, of Cambridge, who is wanted in connection to a bank robbery that occurred Dec. 22 at 1880 Bank.

Anyone with information in any of these cases is asked to contact Cambridge Police Department’s Criminal Investigation Division at 410-228-3333.
