3 young lives 'ruined' by double murder; police arrest 16-year-old suspect
BALTIMORE (WBFF) - Police announced Thursday that a sixteen-year-old boy is being charged as an adult in connection to a double murder that happened this past weekend in West Baltimore.
Troy Lamonta Bradner, 16, of Baltimore, was identified as the suspect and is being charged with two counts of first-degree murder and related charges for the shooting deaths of 15-year-old Quindell Ford and 20-year-old Anthony Daniels, both of Baltimore.
Police responded to the shooting on W. Lafayette Ave. by Chief St. around 1:40 p.m. on Saturday afternoon. On the scene, officers found two victims suffering from gunshot wounds. Both were taken to area hospitals where they succumbed to their injuries. Detectives believe Ford and Daniels were sitting inside a car when they were shot by Bradner in retaliation for a previous robbery.
During a press conference, police emphasized that the case involved two juveniles - "one is a victim, one is a suspect."
"Three lives were ruined, very young lives," police said, adding that "guns right now are prevalent on the street and we're fighting every day to try to get those guns off the streets."
