Barclay Man Facing Attempted Murder, Other Charges

A Barclay man is being held without bail at the Queen Anne’s County Detention Center on multiple charges. Antonio Jamal Harris, 20, was arrested at a home on Barclay Road. Deputies responded to that address in response to a 911 call. Police said no information was provided in the call, but a disturbance could be heard in the background. When police arrived, the occupants of the home told officers there was no problem. Later that day, the Chester River Hospital Center in Chestertown called Maryland State Police to report an assault victim. It was later determined the case was related to the earlier call in Barclay. Sheriff’s deputies responding to the hospital spoke with Monique Evette Harris of Rock Hall. She told police Antonio Harris had fired at her Nissan Maxima as she was leaving the Barclay Road home. Monique Harris said Antonio Harris ordered her to stop, and when she didn’t, he used a long gun to shoot at her. Monique Harris said she had minor facial injuries when a window in the car was shot out.
