Baltimore police captured a man early yesterday morning who had been charged in a warrant with killing a 79-year-old Southeast Baltimore resident. The Regional Warrant Apprehension Task Force and the U.S. Marshals Service found 26-year-old Gerald Reed about 7:20 a.m. at an apartment in the 100 block of N. Broadway, police said. Reed is accused of trying to kill Mathaddues Rozier, 25, on Dec. 26, and the killing the next day of Rozier's father, Alvester Rozier. Police say Reed shot the elder Rozier as he was trying to track down the man's son. The younger Rozier is being held on charges of fatally shooting a 15-year-old youth in what police believe was retaliation against Reed.
