MARYLAND

Fatal shooting: An 18-year-old Prince George's County man was shot to death early yesterday, the possible victim of a carjacking, police said.

Police said Donte T. Lewis, of the 5600 block of Rollins Lane in Capitol Heights, was found about 1 a.m. in the 1400 block of Elkwood Lane in Chapel Oaks with a gunshot wound to the upper body. Lewis was taken to Prince George's Hospital Center, where he was pronounced dead a short time later, police said.

The car Lewis was driving, a 1997 Lincoln Continental with unknown Virginia temporary tags, was not at the scene when police arrived, and they said they suspect it was stolen after the shooting. A police spokeswoman asked anyone with information about the case to contact the homicide division at 301-772-4925.

Sex assault indictment: A Montgomery County grand jury indicted a Derwood man yesterday on charges of sexually assaulting and impregnating his stepdaughter.

Sidney Ray Richardson, 53, was arrested in the District as a fugitive this month after fleeing the sex abuse charges, which were filed in 2002. He was indicted yesterday on charges of child abuse, third-degree sex offense and failure to register as a sex offender, prosecutors said.

Richardson was convicted in 1998 of sexually abusing his stepdaughter, but a Montgomery judge allowed him to live in her home after he served prison time, and Richardson impregnated her in 2001, when she was 14, prosecutors said. He faces a maximum of 28 years in prison for the offenses.

VIRGINIA

Indecency charge: A Fairfax County man was arrested Wednesday night after he allegedly exposed himself to a 12-year-old girl at a Prince William County public library.

John Patrick Fahr, 56, of the 4500 block of Little River Run Drive in Annandale, was charged with indecent exposure in the incident, which allegedly occurred at 7:15 p.m. in the children's section of the Potomac Community Library in Woodbridge.

The girl reported the incident to her sister, who told a librarian, who then called police, said Detective Dennis Mangan, a Prince William police spokesman. About 40 children were in the library at the time.
