Baltimore police announced Sunday the arrest of a man in connection with the fatal shooting of a woman in a Highlandtown home Saturday.

Lukasz Szkiluk, 63, was charged with first- and second-degree murder and related charges. Police have not yet released the name of the victim, who was in her early 30s, and said officers are still working to locate the woman's next of kin.

Szkiluk was being held without bond Sunday, and no attorney was listed for him in court records. Police say the woman was shot in the 200 block of S. Haven Street about 3:30 a.m. in a domestic dispute, but did not provide further details. Szkiluk's address was listed as being in the 200 block of S. Haven Street.

The woman's death was the 16th homicide in an eight-day string of shootings that also wounded dozens in Baltimore. City police did not report any shootings or homicides Sunday.
