ARNOLD, Md. (WNEW/AP) — Anne Arundel County police say a second suspect has been arrested in the shooting of a police officer.

Police said at a news conference on Monday that Cpl. Larry Adams was doing better after being shot Friday. Anne Arundel County Executive Steve Schuh says Adams is “moving” and in “good spirits.”

On Tuesday, the department tweeted a picture of Adams smiling in his hospital bed.

He was upgraded on Sunday from critical to serious condition at Baltimore’s Shock Trauma Center. Adams was shot near a 7-Eleven in the Cape St. Claire area after approaching a man who was reportedly acting suspicious.

Police spokesman Lt. T.J. Smith said Sunday that a second suspect has been arrested in the case. But police did not identify the suspect or release any additional details. Investigators plan to release additional details Monday.

On Friday, police announced 30-year-old Colvin Lamar White was arrested and charged with attempted first- and second-degree murder, among other charges in the case. White was being held without bond.

Schuh say White has been in trouble before, originally sentenced to five years in jail for armed robbery in 2005.

“Of which he only served a very small portion before an over-lenient system of justice turned him back onto the streets,” Schuh said.
