Witnesses called to claim murder suspect missed intended target

The state called four witnesses Wednesday morning on the third day of the murder trial for the suspect accused of killing a U.S. Naval Academy midshipman's mother. Angelo Harrod, 31, of Annapolis, is charged with first-degree murder in the killing of Michelle Cummings, 57, who was struck by a stray bullet while on the patio of the Graduate Hotel in Annapolis on June 29, 2021. She and her husband, Leonard Cummings, were visiting from Houston and had just dropped their son off at the Naval Academy. On Wednesday, prosecutors worked to show the jury the crime scene has two sides, the hotel patio and the Pleasant Street parking lot, where a vehicle was shot up. An iron fence and some trees separate the patio from the street.
