Baltimore County Police are awaiting the results of an extradition hearing and then police will formally charge Shird with first-degree murder.

Officers were called for a burglary in progress Bouie's home in the 100 block of Western Winds Circle at 2:13 a.m. at where he was found suffering from a gunshot wound. Bouie was taken to Northwest Hospital, where he died a short time later, police said.
