UPDATE (May 6, 2019 2:50 p.m.):

Baltimore County Police Homicide detectives made two arrests this weekend in the death of Isabel Villalobos V De Vasquez, an innocent bystander who was shot Thursday afternoon in front of the SaveMart in Lansdowne.

Deandre Larenzo Buckson (27) of the 3000 block of Bero Road, 21227 and Linwood Ronald Buckson (28) of the 800 block of West Fairmount Avenue, 21201 were both arrested Friday night and are presently held without bail pending bail review hearings today.

Detectives determined that just prior to the shooting the two men drove to Speedy Mart at 3815 Hollins Ferry Road next to the Lansdowne Shopping Center. While Deandre Buckson entered the Speedy Mart, Linwood Buckson stayed outside and met with another male subject for a drug transaction. During their encounter Linwood Buckson produced a handgun. The two struggled for the handgun, causing it to discharge. The other male subject was able to take the gun from Linwood Buckson and fled past the SaveMart across the Lansdowne Shopping Center parking lot.

Deandre Buckson exited the Speedy Mart and retrieved another handgun from the vehicle, then ran past the Speedy Mart firing shots toward the SaveMart, where Isabel Villalobos V De Vasquez was standing. She was struck in the upper body and killed as a result of Deandre Buckson firing the gun at the other fleeing male subject.

Deandre Larenzo Buckson stands charged with first degree murder and his brother, Linwood Ronald Buckson, is charged with the use of a firearm in the commission of a felony, first degree assault, and illegal possession of a regulated firearm.

Original Release (May 2, 2019 11:52 p.m.):

An elderly woman is dead after a suspect fired multiple shots at another man but struck her instead.

The woman, who police do not believe was involved in the incident, was struck in the upper body at least once and pronounced dead at the scene. Detectives believe she was inadvertently struck when the suspect fired a gun toward at least one other man across the parking lot in front of the SaveMart in the Lansdowne Shopping Center, 3901 Hollins Ferry Road, around 4:25 p.m. Both the suspect and the other subject(s) fled in opposite directions following the shooting and remain outstanding.

The deceased woman is identified as 78-year-old Isabel Villalobos V De Vasquez of the 400 block of Bigley Avenue in Halethorpe, 21227.

UPDATE (April 5, 2019 4:50 p.m.):

A suspect has been arrested in the murder of Dennis Buckley on Lachlan Circle last Friday.

Detectives from the Baltimore County Police Homicide Unit obtained an arrest warrant for first degree murder for Khalil Zakee Yeldell (21) of the 400 block of Oneida Place Northwest in Washington, D.C. on Wednesday. Yesterday, members of the United States Marshals Service Fugitive Task Force located and took Yeldell into custody in Washington, D.C.

Dennis Buckley was found bleeding and unconscious on the sidewalk in the 6900 block of Lachlan Circle around 9:47 a.m. exactly one week ago. An autopsy Monday determined that his death was caused by "sharp force trauma" and the death was ruled a homicide.

Detectives were able to determine that Yeldell was staying in an apartment in the 6900 block of Lachlan Circle at the time of the murder and fled to Washington, D.C. prior to officers arriving on the scene. Police also determined that an earlier call to 9-1-1 around 5:58 a.m. regarding another victim being threatened by a man with a knife fit the description of Yeldell. 

Detectives continue to investigate to determine the motive in Buckley's death. Additional charges may be pending following a review of the case by the Baltimore County State's Attorney.
