City police arrest two in shooting of homicide suspect, 12-year-old girl


Baltimore police recovered four weapons Friday and arrested two men wanted in connection with a shooting Thursday that wounded a homicide suspect and a 12-year-old girl.

Darnell Wade, 25, and Dartaniyan Barnes, 20, were charged with weapons possession and attempted first-degree murder Friday after the double shooting at noon Thursday in the 1200 block of Poplar Grove St.

The 12-year-old girl was grazed by a bullet and taken to St. Agnes HealthCare, where she was treated and released.

Police said the girl was accidentally hit when two gunman fired at Dennis Hamlin, 19.

Hamlin, of the 3700 block of Bell Ave., was transported to an area hospital, where he underwent surgery to remove a bullet just above the knee, police said yesterday. Hamlin was charged with first-degree murder in the shooting death July 8 of a 20-year-old man in the 3000 block of Wolcott Ave.

Charles Long Jr., 16, of the 1700 block of Poplar Grove St., also was charged with first-degree murder Thursday night in the Wolcott Avenue homicide. He is being held in the Baltimore City jail.

Ragina Cooper-Averella, a police spokeswoman, said Long led investigators to Barnes and Wade, who were transported to the Central Booking and Intake Center pending a bail hearing.

An article about the arrest of two shooting suspects that appeared Sunday in some editions of The Sun incorrectly reported that a Baltimore police spokeswoman said a homicide suspect led detectives to the two men.In fact, she said that an investigation by the homicide unit led detectives to the men, who were later charged with attempted first-degree murder.The Sun regrets the error.
