June 07, 2008

A woman sought in the fatal shooting May 18 of another woman in a South Baltimore rowhouse has been arrested at a relative's house in San Antonio, according to the Lone Star Fugitive Task Force.

Herlinda Rodulfo, 24, is charged in an arrest warrant with first-degree murder in the death of 18-year-old Valerie Barnes, who was fatally shot in a house in the 800 block of Pontiac Ave. in Brooklyn, according to the Baltimore police and the U.S. marshal's office.

Police have not released a motive in the shooting. In a statement, the Lone Star Task Force said that city police developed information that the suspect may have left Baltimore to stay with relatives in San Antonio. Authorities there said they learned she had been spotted in San Antonio, and they distributed wanted posters with her picture.

Deputies with the Bexar County Sheriff's Office arrested Rodulfo on Wednesday. She is being held in the Bexar County jail awaiting extradition to Maryland.
