STETSON MILLER: Rick, these charging documents say that the suspect, Antowan Clark, was belligerent toward the victims, who left him at home when they went out for dinner. And when they came back, a witness says that's when the shooting started.

Charging documents obtained by WJZ show the chaotic moments leading up to the triple shooting in Rosedale on Wednesday evening. According to police, the suspect, 42-year-old Antowan Clark, got into an argument with one of the victims, Nyatiaha, Faltz, at a home on the 5500 block of Lanham Way.

When she and other members of her family left for dinner without Clark, he started calling her continually, prompting her to ask him to leave the home. When she and other members of the family returned, Clark was still there. Faltz's son, Grantley Herbert, went inside the home and started yelling at Clark. And that's when a witness started hearing gunshots. Faltz, Herbert, and the third victim, eight-year-old Kanaya Watlington, were then found in the car that the family had got dinner in, and all were shot.

JOY STEWART: When the officers arrived on the scene, they found three people suffering from gunshot wounds.

STETSON MILLER: A 911 call from Faltz's cell phone captured the screams of the eight-year-old in the back seat and the suspect yelling at Faltz. Faltz and Herbert died, and Clark was arrested outside the car. He is charged with two counts of first-degree murder.

And Clark had a bail review hearing today, but asked for it to be pushed back to Monday because he wanted representation from a personal lawyer. We'll, of course, keep you updated as we learn more about this case. We're live in Baltimore County Police Headquarters. Stetson Miller for WJZ.
