September 28, 2010|By Yeganeh June Torbati, The Baltimore Sun

Police made two arrests Monday, one in a homicide almost three years old, and another for a triple shooting this month.

Police arrested and charged Vincent Clark, 24, of the 4100 block of Norfolk Ave. with first-degree murder in the December 2007 killing of Richard Lawson, 27, in the 2900 block of Chelsea Terrace in the Windsor Hills neighborhood.

Darrell Burrus, 23, of the 2200 block of Round Road was arrested and charged yesterday with attempted murder in a Sept. 6 triple shooting in the 900 block of North Payson St. Police issued a warrant for Burrus' arrest Sept. 23, and a trial date has been set for Oct. 21.

Court records indicate that Sept. 6, the day of the triple shooting, a warrant was issued for Burrus' arrest on a charge of drug possession with intent to distribute. Burrus has faced previous drug and theft-related charges as far back as 2005.
