Man slain in McDonald's

March 20, 1992

A man about 60 years old was stabbed to death yesterday during a heated argument with another man inside a McDonald's Restaurant in Walbrook Junction, Baltimore police reported.

Police declined to identify the victim pending notification of next of kin.

Lt. Robert Stanton of the homicide unit said the victim and another man had started arguing shortly before 3 p.m. while seated in a booth of the restaurant in the 3400 block of Clifton Ave. One of them produced a knife and fatally wounded the other, police said.

A suspect in his 40s was taken into custody and was being questioned last night at police headquarters.

Meanwhile, police said they are still seeking a suspect in the fatal shooting of James "Tank" Emerson, 22, of the 3700 block of Garrison Blvd.

The victim was shot numerous times about 2:30 p.m. Wednesday while standing outside a food market in the 3100 block of Oakfield Ave., police said.

Police said Mr. Emerson was taken to the Maryland Shock Trauma Center, where he died at 3:51 p.m..

Six expended 9mm cartridges were found on the sidewalk near the victim.

Police last night said they had yet to establish a motive for the slaying.

There have been 70 slayings in the city this year, five more than at the corresponding time last year, police said.
