Po­lice ask­ing for as­sis­tance in un­solved Parkville shoot­ing

The Avenue News - - EDITORIAL -

Bal­ti­more County Po­lice are ask­ing for the pub­lic’s as­sis­tance in iden­ti­fy­ing a ve­hi­cle that may be in­volved in the shoot­ing mur­der of 19-year-old Di­a­monic Reyshann Arca-Jones in Parkville last Oc­to­ber.

Po­lice were called to the area of Tay­lor Av­enue and Bev­erly Av­enue near the Dunkin’ Donuts store for a shoot­ing around 7:22 p.m. on Oc­to­ber 20, 2018. When of­fi­cers ar­rived they dis­cov­ered Arca-Jones ly­ing in the road­way on Bev­erly Av­enue with at least one gun­shot wound to the up­per body. He was trans­ported to Johns Hop­kins Bayview Med­i­cal Cen­ter where he was pro­nounced de­ceased.

De­tec­tives have ob­tained sur­veil­lance video of a ve­hi­cle that may have been in­volved in this crime. The video de­picts the ve­hi­cle driv­ing across the park­ing lot of Pap­pas Seafood Car­ry­Out at the cor­ner of Tay­lor Av­enue and Oak­leigh Road just af­ter the shoot­ing.

Po­lice are ask­ing any­one who may have in­for­ma­tion about this ve­hi­cle, its owner or oc­cu­pants, or any ad­di­tional in­for­ma­tion re­gard­ing the shoot­ing death of Arca-Jones to con­tact Homi­cide Unit de­tec­tives by call­ing 410-3072020. Call­ers may re­main anony­mous.
