Arrest made in Laurel slaying
Police have arrested a man in North Carolina who they believe was responsible for a shooting in the Laurel area last month, authorities said.
Jamar Slade Russell, 25, was arrested Thursday in Laurinburg, North Carolina, in connection with the Dec. 11 shooting death of 28-year-old James Lamont Tinsley, authorities said. He is being held there as a fugitive from justice pending his extradition to Maryland, authorities said.
Police have said Tinsley was found shot just before 3 a.m. in a vehicle in the 8800 block of Hawthorn Lane in the Laurel area. They said the incident appeared to stem from a personal dispute between him and Russell.
