A second suspect wanted in shooting a Southwest Baltimore shooting that left on man dead and a 93-year-old woman injured has been arrested, city police announced on Friday.
Steven Johnson, 29, of the 3000 block of Poplar Terrace is charged in a shooting in the 100 block of South Calverton Road on August 26.
Clara Bea Canty, 93, told The Sun that she watched from her front stoop as gunfire broke out, killing a 23-year-old Kevin Gray. A 17-year-old was also injured in the shooting. A bullet grazed the top of Canty's head, sending her to the hospital.
"I just couldn't move," Canty said during an interview in August. "I didn't see them. I wasn't really paying attention. I remember saying, 'Oh Lord, the man got shot. He's dead.'"
Officers working in plain clothes were in the area when they heard gunshots and saw two suspects running away from the scene. They arrested Spence Jeffers, 24, at the scene and charged him with first-degree murder and related offenses.
