Original Release (October 21, 2018 2:22 p.m.):

The Baltimore County Police Department Homicide Unit is investigating a shooting that left one man dead near Taylor Avenue in Parkville last night.

Police responded to a call for shots fired around 7:20 p.m. to find a man suffering from a life-threatening gunshot wound lying in the roadway in the 7800 block of Beverly Avenue near Taylor Avenue. He was transported to a local hospital where he later died. He is identified as Diamonic Reyshann Arca-Jones (19) of the 7800 block of Beverly Avenue, 21234.

The suspect fled the area prior to police arrival.

Detectives from the Homicide Unit are continuing their investigation this afternoon to determine the motive for this shooting. Anyone who may have information about the suspect in this crime is asked to call police at 410-307-2020. Callers may remain anonymous.

In a collaborative effort between jurisdictions, patrol based units, and the Baltimore County Police Robbery Unit, an armed commercial robbery suspect who struck in numerous areas around Baltimore County, Baltimore City and Anne Arundel County since mid-November is now in custody.

Thomas Hudson III (53) of no fixed address was arrested and charged with multiple counts of Armed Robbery, Robbery, Use of a Firearm in the Commission of a Felony/Violent Crime and 1st Degree Assault.

“We as a Department must continue to do our best to fight crime and remove those committing these violent offenses within our community,” said Baltimore County Police Chief Terrence B. Sheridan. One day before Thanksgiving, our officers accomplished just that.

Hudson's crime spree was first noticed when he attempted to rob a McDonald's restaurant on Reisterstown Road on November 15. He displayed a handgun at the counter and demanded cash out of the register. Instead of responding to his demands, the employee screamed and ran to the back of the store. Hudson left empty handed but held up a Dunkin Donuts on Liberty Road half an hour later.

Detectives have linked Hudson to at least six armed robberies occurring in Baltimore County as well as additional armed robberies in Baltimore City and Anne Arundel County. In Baltimore County Hudson has been linked mostly to armed robberies of fast food restaurants, typically leaning in the drive-thru window, displaying a handgun and demanding cash. He has also been linked to the robberies of a private business, corporate office, and a pharmacy. Members of the Baltimore County, Baltimore City and Anne Arundel County Police Departments have met, collaborated, and cooperated in search warrants and other investigative means in the effort to stop this criminal.

The case began to break when Hudson was caught on video attempting to use a credit card stolen in one of his robberies, followed up by surveillance video obtained of Hudson leaving the scene of one of the robberies in an older model tan Buick LeSabre. Detectives from the Robbery unit disseminated this information to patrol and specialized units in the Woodlawn, Pikesville and Towson precincts, whose officers began canvassing their jurisdictions for the suspect vehicle.

On November 22, officers in the Investigative Services Unit and Community Action Team of the Pikesville Precinct followed through with a strategic plan to search for the suspect vehicle, and found it. Hudson eventually returned to the vehicle, where he was promptly arrested. A search warrant conducted on the vehicle resulted in the discovery of the gun used in the robberies, which was determined to be an air pistol.

“Due to the intuitive work of our patrol officers and the collective effort of our detectives, we have put an end to this crime spree which clearly would have continued for quite some time,” said Baltimore County Police Colonel Steven M. Hlavach, Commander of the Criminal Investigations Bureau.  

Thomas Hudson continues to be held without bail at the Baltimore County Detention Center pending trial.
