Second suspect in Pimlico killings arrested in city HC

August 04, 1991

A second suspect in the July 28 killings of two young men in the Pimlico area was arrested yesterday after city police surrounded a town house in Southwest Baltimore.

Homicide Detective Oscar Requer said the suspect, Donald Eugene "Butt-Butt" Booze Jr., 26, was visiting a young woman at her mother's home in the 100 block of Stonecroft Road when the police received a telephone tip that he was there.

When there was no answer at the door, at least a dozen officers, including members of the police Quick Response Team, surrounded the house and waited. Just over an hour later, Mr. Booze, of the 3100 block of Thorndale Avenue, surrendered.

He was charged with two counts each of first-degree murder and felony handgun use in the fatal shooting of Antonio Henderson and Isaac Durant. They were killed in a street shooting in the 3100 block of Woodland Avenue.

Another suspect, Alan E. Snead, 24, of the 3400 block of Virginia Avenue, was arrested on murder charges Tuesday.
