BALTIMORE (WJZ) — Police have made a second arrest in the killing of a mother inside of her corner store in east Baltimore. The gunman opened fire on Carmen Rodriguez in front of her children three days before Christmas.
“He’s an animal. He did it in front of my kids,” the victim’s husband, Derrick Galan, told WJZ shortly after the killing.
It happened at Fayette and Kenwood. Police announced the latest arrest Thursday but provided few details.
“It was good detective work, community support and tireless, relentless effort,” Baltimore Police Commissioner Michael Harrison said.
Court records show police charged 39-year-old Martin Brooks of Baltimore County with having a loaded weapon in his car on Valentine’s Day. Less than a week later, police charged him with Rodriguez’s murder and nine other criminal counts.
