Police Make Arrest In Deadly Northwest Baltimore Double Shooting

BALTIMORE (WJZ) -- A 27-year-old man is under arrest in a deadly double shooting that unfolded in Northwest Baltimore back in April, authorities said Monday.

Lamarr Candia of Gwynn Oak was taken into custody Friday on a warrant charging him with first- and second-degree murder, first- and second-degree assault, and conspiracy to commit murder, among other offenses, online court records show.

The charges stem from a shooting that unfolded about 8:45 p.m. April 29 at a gas station near the intersection of Liberty Heights Avenue and Garrison Boulevard, Baltimore Police said. Responding officers found two men who had been shot.

The victims, identified as 33-year-old Robert Carter and 27-year-old Kennard Wilds, were taken to Sinai Hospital, where both later died of their injuries, police said.

Based on details gleaned from a preliminary investigation, detectives believe Carter and Wilds were shot following an unspecified dispute.

A warrant was issued for Candia's arrest about a month later, though it was not immediately clear what led investigators to zero in on him.

Court records show a preliminary hearing in the case is scheduled for the afternoon of June 29 in Baltimore City District Court.
