Two men were arrested at their homes yesterday on warrants charging them with first-degree murder in the drug-related shootings of two males in Northeast Baltimore in January.
The men were arrested by members of the U.S. Marshals Fugitive Task Force, said police Sgt. Ernest Anderson of the Baltimore homicide squad.
Solomon Jones, 20, of the 4700 block of Elison Ave. in Moravia and Damien Simmons, 20, of the 700 block of Cator Ave. in Waverly were arrested without incident, Anderson said. They were being held without bail at Central Booking and Intake Center, pending bail hearings.
On Jan. 18, Calvin Henderson, 22, of the 4000 block of Wilsby Ave. in Waverly, Aaron Edwards, 21, of the 2400 block of Seamon Ave. in southern Baltimore and a third man were shot near an apartment complex in the 5100 block of Lodestone Way, Anderson said. Henderson died at the scene.
A friend drove Edwards to a service station at Belair Road and Erdman Avenue, about two miles away, Anderson said. There, Edwards fell from the vehicle and was pronounced dead by city Fire Department medics.
The third man shot survived.
The case was investigated by city police Detectives Michael Glenn and Gordon Carew and U.S. Drug Enforcement Administration Agent Martine Wade.
