Police make second arrest in West Baltimore homicide

Courtney Roy

A 25-year-old woman was arrested on the Eastern Shore Thursday in the killing of a man in West Baltimore last month, marking the second arrest in the case, Baltimore Police said Friday.

Courtney Roy was taken into custody by warrant apprehension detectives in Queenstown, taken to Central Booking in the city and charged with first-degree murder in the killing of 31-year-old Tony Tingle, police said.


Police responded to the 1300 block of N. Stricker Street in the Sandtown-Winchester neighborhood, where Tingle lived, about 3:55 p.m. May 6 and found Tingle with a gunshot wound to the chest, police said.

Police said Tingle was in a home on the block when a suspect entered and opened fire.

Marcus Joyner

Police previously arrested Marcus Joyner, 26, in the killing, charging him with first-degree murder, armed robbery, conspiracy to commit armed robbery and use of a firearm in the commission of a violent crime, according to police and online court records.

Police on Friday said they could not elaborate on what roles Roy and Joyner allegedly played in the killing. Neither had an attorney listed in court records Friday.

Also on Friday, police announced a second arrest in a nonfatal shooting, also from last month.

Brandie Smith, 28, was arrested and charged with attempted first-degree attempted murder in the May 7 shooting of a man in the 1500 block of W. Lanvale St. in West Baltimore, police said. Another man, Tyree Smith, is also charged in the shooting.

Neither Brandie Smith nor Tyree Smith had an attorney listed in online court records.
