Baltimore Police say a 24-year-old man was arrested and charged with murder after he fatally shot two women in the city’s Clifton Park neighborhood Saturday.
The department wrote in a news release Sunday that Dandre Woods-Bethel was arrested after he shot two women, 23 and 46 years old, outside his home in the 2800 block of Clifton Park Terrace in Northeast Baltimore before walking back inside to call police himself.
Police said officers were called to the block neighboring the Clifton Park Golf Course at 6:36 p.m. for a report of a shooting and found two women who’d been shot.
Both women died after they were taken to the hospital to be treated. Police have not identified either of the two women.
Police did not say anything about the motive behind the shooting nor what Woods-Bethel told investigators during the 911 call, but wrote that investigators believe “Woods-Bethel exited his home, shot the victims, and then went back inside of his home to call 911.”
Woods-Bethel was arrested and police say he was taken to the city’s Central Booking and Intake Facility, where he will be charged with murder, assault and related weapons charges.
It is unclear whether Woods-Bethel has retained an attorney in the case as the charges have yet to be filed in the state’s online court records system.
Case records show that on Feb. 27, Woods-Bethel pleaded guilty to violating a protective order related to an incident Aug. 31, 2019, and received a probation before judgment sentence with one year of unsupervised probation. He’d been accused of domestic violence July 19, 2019, court records show, and again Jan. 12 this year.
The court ordered Woods-Bethel to surrender his firearms in his July 19 domestic violence case, online records show. However, the order was rescinded Sept. 19, 2019, as he awaiting trial on the charge of violating a protective order, records show.
