“Our job is to make sure that we go out and bring those people in and hold them accountable, and now, we’ll be handing them off to the state’s attorney and criminal justice system,” Baltimore Mayor Brandon Scott said Friday during a neighborhood community walk in northwest Baltimore. “There’s one more person to get, and we will get that person as well.”

“BPD has been working tirelessly on the investigation into this incident and are grateful for the many partners that assisted us in identifying and capturing one of our suspects,” said Police Commissioner Richard Worley said in a release. “We will not rest until Williams is in custody. While this arrest cannot undo the damage and trauma caused that day, it is my hope that it can bring some peace and justice to the victims, the Morgan community and our city.”

Authorities are offering a reward of up to $9,000 for tips leading to an arrest and charges. Anyone with information is asked to call police at 410-396-2444 or Metro Crime Stoppers at 866-7LOCKUP.
