Darryl Anderson, who police say shot three women–killing 20-year-old Gennie Shird– in a June 27 assault staged on a Baltimore front porch, was tracked down in Alabama by a team of federal marshals and arrested July 16.
Anderson, 25, who was considered armed and dangerous and had been dubbed “Public Enemy Number One” in connection with the Shird killing and several other murders in Baltimore, is awaiting extradition from Birmingham where he was held after being surrounded and captured without incident the morning of July 16.
A team of law enforcement officers, acting on a tip, trailed him to Birmingham, “surrounded the location where Anderson was hiding and waited for him to poke his head out,” according to a news release from the U.S. Marshal’s Service.
The ex-convict “never stood a chance,” marshals said of the suspect who was said to be armed with two guns and had vowed to never return to prison.
Police said Anderson had been summoned June 27 by a woman who was engaged in a dispute with some women who were gathered on the front porch of a row house in the 3300 block of Elmora Avenue.
When he arrived, he was allegedly told by a woman later arrested by police as a conspirator in the case “do what y’all do,” law enforcement officials said.
