Suspect arrested: Steven N. Foster, the 19-year-old suspect in a shooting Tuesday in Waldorf, was arrested later that day in the District, according to the Charles County Sheriff's Office.

Foster, of the District, was arrested by D.C. police and Charles sheriff's deputies in the 2200 block of Savannah Street in Southeast Washington and charged with being a fugitive. Foster and two other men were arguing in a vehicle in the parking lot of St. Charles Towne Center about 5 p.m., police said, when Foster allegedly fired shots. A 19-year-old District man fled uninjured.

Soon afterward, a 39-year-old District man was found in the emergency room of Southern Maryland Hospital Center in Clinton with a gunshot wound that police said he got during the argument at the mall. The man was listed in serious but stable condition, the sheriff's office said.

Officer involved in shooting: A Prince William County police officer shot a 25-year-old Manassas man in the leg at his home yesterday after the man allegedly resisted arrest and hit the officer and another officer several times, a police spokeswoman said.

Police went to a home in the 7600 block of Pine Street just after 8 a.m. when a caller told police that he feared his nephew, Bruce D. Johnson, would hurt him because he did not allow Johnson to borrow his car, the spokeswoman, Sgt. Kim Chinn, said. When the two officers arrived at the home, Johnson hit one of them in the face, she said.

He fought for more than five minutes as officers used pepper spray and batons in an effort to detain him, Chinn said. An officer then shot Johnson in the leg, Chinn said. Johnson was flown to a local hospital, where was treated and released. He was charged with malicious wounding of a police officer, assault on a police officer and resisting arrest, Chinn said.

Embezzlement charge: A former employee of the Lansdowne Resort has been charged with embezzling more than $260,000 from the luxury hotel in Leesburg, Loudoun County sheriff's officials said yesterday.

Between May 2002 and October 2003, Dennis Williams, 46, who worked in the resort's accounting department, allegedly applied unauthorized refunds to his credit cards and diverted at least one such refund to an acquaintance, officials said.

Williams, of Fairfax City, is also accused of intercepting check payments to the resort, they said. Williams is charged with two counts of embezzlement, one count of money laundering and one count of fraudulent entries. He is being held in the Loudoun jail in lieu of $265,000 bond.
