— A sus­pect in the fa­tal shoot­ing of a man out­side a Bal­ti­more shop­ping cen­ter last week is in cus­tody af­ter in­ves­ti­ga­tors cap­tured him near North East, ac­cord­ing to the Mary­land State Po­lice.

Mem­bers of the MSP Ap­pre­hen­sion Team ar­rested the sus­pect, Em­mett Pul­liam, 22, of Bal­ti­more, with­out in­ci­dent about noon Fri­day at a res­i­dence in the unit block of Mor­gan Court, which is off Ir­ish­town Road, re­ported Lt. James DeCourcey, com­man­der of MSP’s North­ern Re­gion Crim­i­nal En­force­ment Unit.

On Mon­day night, DeCourcey did not have ac­cess to in­for­ma­tion re­gard­ing what tie or ties Pul­liam had to the Mor­gan Court res­i­dence.

NORTH EAST

The MSP Ap­pre­hen­sion Team, which is part of the Capi­tol Area Re­gional Fugi­tive Task Force, was as­sist­ing the Bal­ti­more City Po­lice Depart­ment when it nabbed the mur­der sus­pect, DeCourcey said.

De­tec­tives as­signed to MSP’s North East bar­rack also played a role in track-

ing down Pul­liam to that Mor­gan Court ad­dress, he added.

“De­tec­tives learned that he was pos­si­bly in the North East area,” DeCourcey said.

Pul­liam had been on the run since about 6:30 p.m. May 3, when he al­legedly shot 21-year-old Quincey Way­mon sev­eral times amid an ar­gu­ment that started in­side a store, be­fore spilling out­side the shop­ping cen­ter, where the fa­tal shoot­ing oc­curred, po­lice said.

Way­mon was taken to an area hos­pi­tal, where he died from his gun­shot wounds, po­lice added.

Pul­liam is charged with first-de­gree mur­der, sec­ond­de­gree mur­der and five other of­fenses, ac­cord­ing to Bal­ti­more City Dis­trict Court records.

As of Mon­day night, Pul­liam, who is sched­uled for a June 1 pre­lim­i­nary hear­ing, re­mained in a Bal­ti­more City jail with­out bond, court records show.
