A man sought in a killing and three nonfatal shootings was arrested this week while awaiting a bail hearing for assaulting a police officer.

Julius Snead, 26, of the 700 block of Lennox St. was ordered held without bail at Central Booking and Intake Center, Lt. Richard Fahlteich of the homicide squad, said yesterday.

Fahlteich said Snead had been charged in a warrant with first-degree murder in the shooting of Dion Dante Gibson, 25, of the first block of Windmore Place in Woodlawn, who was shot April 13 in the 2900 block of Garrison Blvd. in Northwest Baltimore, Fahlteich said.

He said Snead also had been charged in three other warrants with attempted murder in the April 28 shootings of three men, two on Woodland Avenue in Pimlico in Northwest Baltimore and a third on Etting Street in West Baltimore.

About 12: 10 a.m. Monday, Officer Troy Jackson of the Central District was in the 600 block of Eutaw St., where he questioned a man who appeared to be involved in narcotics activity, Fahlteich said.

The man struck Jackson in the face and fled, Fahlteich said, and was arrested by other officers. Jackson was unhurt.

Fahlteich said the man was taken to Central Booking and fingerprinted, which revealed his identity. Snead was charged with first-degree murder, three counts of attempted first-degree murder and related charges.
