Teenager Allegedly Killed Man with Family Present
Tavon William Arthur Barnett, 19, faces charges of first- and second-degree murder.
A 19-year-old Baltimore man is charged with murder after police say he killed a man in an apartment where his family was present.
Tavon William Arthur Barnett was arrested by the Baltimore Warrant Apprehension Task Force on Tuesday. He is charged with first- and second-degree murder for killing 29-year-old Terrence Seale.
Barnett was at Seale’s apartment on Nov. 3 in the 1200 block of Linworth Avenue when they got into an argument in the kitchen and Barnett allegedly shot Seale multiple times in the torso and head, according to police.
Seale’s wife and two small children were in the apartment at the time of the shooting. Barnett was seen running from the scene with another man, who was not inside at the time of the shooting, according to the arrest warrant.
The arrest warrant also reports that witnesses identified Barnett as the shooter.
Last week police released a photo and description of Barnett, and said he may have been hanging around The Alameda or possibly Cockeysville area Walmarts.
