RANDALLSTOWN, Md. (WJZ) ―Baltimore County Police say an arrest has been made in the murder of a Randallstown man, killed inside his own home.
Police took Kelly Emanuel Shird, 27, into custody Thursday for the murder of Craig Bouie, 37.
Shird was arrested on a warrant in Virginia, and charges are pending.
Police were called for a burglary in progress on August 5 just after 2 a.m. in the 100-block of Western Winds Circle in Randallstown.
When they arrived they found Bouie suffering from a gunshot wound. He was transported to Northwest Hospital where he later died.
Baltimore County investigators obtained evidence that suggested the suspect
had broken into the residence through a basement window. Detectives believe that the motive was burglary.
They received a tip that the suspect was at an address in Lancaster, Virginia with a girlfriend. Working with police in Virginia, they checked the location and found the suspect. A warrant was obtained in Baltimore County against Kelly Shird.
He has been arrested on the warrant in Virginia, and authorities in Baltimore County are awaiting the results of an extradition hearing.
Upon release to authorities in Baltimore County, Kelly Shird will be formally charged with first-degree murder.
