The shooting death of 12-year-old Sean Johnson as he watched basketball on his porch in 2011 stemmed from the Black Guerrilla Family gang wanting to "send a message" in his East Baltimore neighborhood after the killing of a member, prosecutors said Friday. At a pretrial hearing in Baltimore Circuit Court, prosecutors for the first time presented their theory that the killing was related to gang retaliation. Danyae Robinson, 31, and Derrick Brown, 20, face charges that include first-degree murder in the shooting, which also wounded three teenagers gathered on the porch.

Six months after the seemingly random murder of a 12-year-old boy in East Baltimore, police had not been able to solve the case, and, a prosecutor said in court Tuesday, the investigation had "gone cold. " But then in December 2011, a defendant in a drug case told prosecutors he knew something about the killing. Antwan Mosley told them that the boy, Sean Johnson, was gunned down as members of the Black Guerrilla Family gang lashed out in revenge for an attack on of one of their own. "That was a key break in a tragic homicide," Assistant State's Attorney Kelly Madigan said.

Three people have been arrested in a May 2011 quadruple shooting in East Baltimore that killed a 12-year-old who was sitting on a porch, watching a basketball game on television. Police said Danyae Robinson, 29; Antwan Mosley, 21; and Derrick E. Brown, 17, have each been charged with murder and three counts of attempted murder after being arrested by the warrant apprehension task force. Charging documents shed little insight into the motive for the shooting or how police solved the case, saying only that phone records were used to corroborate statements from multiple witnesses.

Two weeks after a 12-year-old boy was shot while watching an NBA playoff game on the porch of his Northeast Baltimore home near Clifton Park, police are pleading for help in finding the killer, who they think might live near the victim. Spokesman Anthony Guglielmi said Wednesday that Baltimore police are working "round the clock" to identify suspects in the shooting of Sean Johnson on May 24, an incident that "galvanized the city. " But he said police "are running out of witnesses and evidence to further fuel our efforts.

Holding candles under a blistering sun, family, friends and neighbors gathered Monday afternoon outside the Darley Park house where 12-year-old Sean Johnson was fatally shot last week and remembered him with prayers, tears and calls for the Northeast Baltimore community to stand together against violence. "We're not here to mourn his death," declared Sandra Robinson, a neighbor. "We're here to uplift him. Sean is going home. " She urged the crowd of 70 or so to pray for Sean's family, but also for the "perpetrators that committed this heinous act. " Sean Johnson died Thursday at Johns Hopkins Children's Center, two days after he and three of his friends were shot while watching a televised basketball game on the front porch of the home in the 1700 block of Cliftview Ave. The other three were not seriously injured, but Sean was shot in the head and tests showed he was brain dead.

Alonzo Smith was walking Thursday in the 1600 block of Darley Ave. when he spotted his 92-year-old neighbor Janie Frieson standing in her doorway. "You OK?" Smith asked. Frieson smiled and assured him she was fine, and Smith walked on to his Northeast Baltimore home a few doors down. The brief exchange captured a sense of community that residents say endures on the block of mostly well-kept - and inhabited - brick rowhouses in the Darley Park neighborhood, even as the wider area grapples with the highest homicide rate in all of Baltimore.
