Pearson was discovered by officers after they were called to the 1400 block of Broening Highway around 2:30 p.m. Jan. 11. He was taken to the hospital where he later died.
Police Commissioner Michael Harrison said at the time that they’d identified a person of interest in the case “based on citizen calls and CitiWatch surveillance video.”
Court records show that police obtained a warrant for Haskins’ arrest Jan. 12 and that it was served Wednesday. The department said Haskins was arrested in Middle River in Baltimore County and that detectives seized a loaded firearm during a search.
Haskins is charged with first- and second-degree murder as well as a handful of weapons and assault offenses. He does not have an attorney listed in online court records.
