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.
