Original release (October 4, 2015  10:36 a.m.):

Just before noon on October 3, 2015, Baltimore County Police received a call for an armed robbery in the parking lot of Pappas Seafood Restaurant in the 1700 block of Taylor Avenue, 21234.

Police were able to learn that the owner of the restaurant, Markos Pappas (83), parked his car in the front parking lot of the restaurant and then was bent over inside the passenger side of his car in order to get a bag out of his car. At that point, the suspect came up to Mr. Pappas and struck the owner on the head with a handgun. The victim fell to the ground after being struck but was able to get up and flee into the restaurant. The suspect grabbed the bag containing money and drove off from the area.

Several witnesses observed the incident and provided information leading police into Baltimore City. A County officer observed the suspect's car traveling west on Northern Parkway and followed the car until the suspect hit a parked car near the intersection of Greenmount and Venable Avenues. Baltimore City police assisted County officers and the County Police helicopter in finding and placing the suspect under arrest, in the 3300 block of Greenmount Avenue. The suspect's handgun was recovered on Pappas' parking lot.

Mr. Pappas was taken to an area hospital where he was treated for his injuries.

The suspect has been identified as Darrell Lamar Burns (25) of the 1300 block of Apple Ridge Court, 21040. Burns has been charged with armed robbery, first-degree assault, being a convicted felon in possession of a handgun, use of a firearm in a crime of violence and illegal possession of a regulated firearm. Burns is being held without bail at the Baltimore County Detention Center.

Baltimore County Police are seeking the public’s assistance in obtaining information on the 2009 death of a Glenmont man.

Just before 3 p.m. on February 14, 2009, Baltimore County Police responded to an apartment in the 7000 Block of Lachlan Circle 21239 for a cardiac arrest. When officers arrived at the scene, they found 22-year-old Daniel Ho Coverston suffering from a gunshot wound to the head. He was declared deceased at the scene.

A witness told police that he had come to the location to check on Coverston because Coverston recently had surgery. There was no answer at the door, but the door was unlocked so he went inside where he found Converston unresponsive.

Baltimore County Police Homicide Detectives have conducted a thorough investigation into this incident but have not been able to develop any information that positively identified a suspect. They are now turning to the public for help.

Anyone with information on this case is asked to call police at 410-307-2020 or Metro Crime Stoppers at 1-866-7LOCKUP.
