Man charged in teens' killings

August 13, 2008|By Julie Bykowicz

A Baltimore man has been charged with first-degree murder in the shooting deaths of two 17-year-olds in June at a city park in West Baltimore.

Timothy Crockett, 24, is accused of fatally shooting Darrius Harrison and Djuan Anderson on June 12 at Easterwood Park in the 1500 block of N. Bentalou St.

Police said they served Crockett with the murder warrant Monday at the Central Booking and Intake Center, where he was being held after being arrested July 23 on handgun and car theft charges.

The charging documents allege that Crockett "conspired with" Davon Madison, 18, in the killings. Court records show that Madison faces armed robbery and assault charges from a June 24 incident in Baltimore, but they do not indicate that he has been charged in the June 12 deaths.

Witnesses to the 3 a.m. killings said they heard Crockett and Madison "plan and arrange" the shooting and then saw them retrieve a gun and go meet Harrison and Anderson, charging documents say.
