Anne Arundel County police have obtained a warrant charging Darius Keenan Jr., 26, of Pasadena with first-degree murder in the fatal shooting of his father, who was found shot to death in his home on Aug. 12.

The warrant was obtained Tuesday after an investigation that took detectives to North Carolina, police said. They said Keenan was located in Charlotte, N.C., after police responding to the family's home the day his father was found dead determined his father's car was missing, and authorities in North Carolina stopped it with Keenan driving.

Officials are seeking to return him from Mecklenburg, N.C., where is he is being held on a detainer on Anne Arundel County auto theft charges, police said.

The new charges include murder, assault and credit card theft, police said.
