Teen arrested in Morgan State shooting as Baltimore police search for second suspect

BALTIMORE (AP) — Police have arrested a 17-year-old in connection with last week’s shooting at Morgan State University during homecoming celebrations, which left five people wounded. Baltimore police announced arrest Friday morning but didn’t identify the suspect because he’s a minor. Authorities have an arrest warrant for a second suspect, 18-year-old Javon Williams. School officials say neither suspect is a student at Morgan State. Authorities say the juvenile was arrested Thursday in Washington, D.C., and will be charged with multiple counts of attempted murder. The campus of the historically Black college in northeast Baltimore was placed on lockdown for hours as officers initially thought there was an active shooter threat.
