Baltimore police announced Monday the arrest of a man they believe shot six people — two fatally — outside a convenience store in Northwest Baltimore at the end of November.
Damon Dwight Alexander was arrested by Warrant Apprehension Task Force officers Monday morning while sleeping on a couch at a relative’s home, Police Commissioner Kevin Davis said at a news conference. Police said Alexander, 27, is a member of the Black Guerrilla Family gang.
The arrest comes as the city is on the verge of reaching the 300-homicide mark for the second straight year, but only the second time since the 1990s. As of Monday, there had been 299 killings in Baltimore.
