On Thursday around 5 p.m., Anne Arundel County Police responded to a 911 call at a model home in the 7500 block of Newmanstown Drive. When they walked inside, they found a 33-year-old Steven Wilson suffering from a gunshot wound, medics declared him dead on the scene, WMAR reported.
During a news conference on Friday afternoon, police announced they were able to make the arrest thanks to a tip from a community member.
According to the Anne Arundel County Police Chief, officers spent 31 hours straight working on this case, trying to put the person responsible behind bars. Now, the man is charged with murder, armed robbery, theft, use of a firearm in a violent crime and other related charges.
