An 18-year-old suspect was arrested Wednesday by members of the Regional Warrant Apprehension Task Force on warrants charging him in the shotgun killings of two men -- one a member of a street gang -- during a fight in Baltimore early Sunday.

Eric "Ericky C" Tate of the 2200 block of Guilford Ave. is accused of shooting Anthony Taylor Jr., 20, and Adrian Holiday, 19, with a shotgun in the 300 block of E. 22nd St. shortly before 3 a.m., police said.

Police said Taylor, a member of the Bloods gang, was fighting with Maurice Johnson, a member of the Young Gorillas. The fight, police said, was over territory.

Police said a man arrived and shot Taylor in the chest, before turning the shotgun on Holiday, a witness to the fight, and shooting him in the chest.

It was not known whether Holiday or Tate are gang members, police said.

Tate was arrested about 2 a.m. Wednesday in a townhouse in the 6500 block of Pioneer Drive, near East Northern Parkway, and was being held without bail at the Central Booking and Intake Center, police said.
