Investigators believe Wilson shot Julian Fruh, 19, multiple times on Aug. 31 in Northeast Baltimore.

Fruh died at Johns Hopkins Hospital from a gunshot wound to the head, police said. He worked as a security guard for Allied Universal, a private firm that provides security for Morgan State. Shortly after the shooting, Morgan State officials said the university was increasing police patrols in the area and referred students and staff to the university’s counseling center.

Detectives identified Wilson, a student at Morgan State, using surveillance footage, police wrote in charging documents. Police believe Wilson and Fruh were talking on the phone while walking toward each other before Fruh was shot. Chase was arrested in the 200 block of Water Street and taken to Central Booking, police said Tuesday.

Court records did not list an attorney for Wilson.
