Md. officer, suspect turns self in
Baltimore police officer Gahiji A. Tshamba, who is accused of fatally shooting an unarmed former Marine, turned himself in Sunday after a vigorous effort to locate him.
Tshamba arrived with his attorney at the Central Booking Intake Facility in Baltimore about 1:30 a.m., police said.
Baltimore police had declared him their "No. 1 suspect" for the weekend and mobilized dozens of officers to comb city streets and distribute fliers.
A warrant for first-degree murder was issued Friday afternoon, charging Tshamba in the killing of Tyrone Brown, 32, a former Marine who was shot 12 times last weekend outside a Mount Vernon club, charging documents say.
