Baltimore County police have arrested a 24-year-old man and charged him with first-degree murder in the death of a Parkville High School senior early Sunday.

Clinton A. Bradley Jr., who has no fixed address, was arrested Wednesday and incarcerated without bail at the Baltimore County Detention Center. The victim, Brandon N. Jackson, 18, was found dead from a gunshot wound in the parking lot of an Exxon gas station at 7301 McClean Blvd.

A police statement said a motive for the shooting remained unclear and that the incident was still under investigation.

There has been no arrest yet in the county's other weekend shooting, police said. In that case, Vincent I. Thomas, 20, a Glen Burnie resident, was found early Saturday in a field near the intersection of Illinois Avenue and Annapolis Road in Lansdowne. He had been shot several times.

A police spokeswoman, Detective Cathleen E. Batton, also provided the name of a victim in a homicide earlier this year. He was Nathan Bowles, 41, who died Jan. 8 of gunshot wounds at an apartment complex in the 9800 block of Langs Road in Essex. There has been no arrest in that case.

Also added to the year's total of four homicides in Baltimore County was a case that had initially been considered a Montgomery County killing, according to Batton. The victim was Gerardo Botello, 40, whose body was found Jan. 5, 2009, on an Interstate 270 ramp. An investigation revealed that Botello was killed in Baltimore County, where authorities took control of the case last month.

On Feb. 4, police arrested Jeffrey Gregory, 44, of the 400 block of E. Madison St. in Baltimore and charged him with first-degree murder in Botello's death. He is being held without bail in the county detention center.
