- Brian Mario Graves, 18, of Germantown, Md. Graves was charged with first and second-degree assault. He was being held without bond Friday in the Frederick County Adult Detention Center.

Police said the victim and witnesses told them five people drove up to the victim, got out of their cars, and started beating and kicking him. They said the attackers retreated to their cars, and fired several shots from a handgun as they drove away. Six bullet casings were found on the ground, they said.

After a lookout was broadcast to police in the area, cars matching the description given by witnesses were seen traveling south on Interstate 270, police said. A Frederick Police Department officer, assisted by a Frederick County Sheriff's deputy, was able to stop the car occupied by Drayton, Graves and Dorsey, they said.

The second car was able to exit I-270 and get away, police said.

The motive for the attack is not known, they said.
