Man arrested for Md. Marine's death

By Associated Press

Baltimore police have made an arrest in the slaying of a U.S. Marine who was shot to death while partying with fellow Marines at an after-hours club.

Sgt. Chase Love was shot several times in July on the dance floor of the Queen's Hookah Lounge and Club. Love was 26 years old and a native of New Orleans.

Police say 18-year-old Ronald Johnson was arrested Tuesday morning and charged with first-degree murder in Love's death. Charging documents show Love and Johnson got into a fight on the dance floor. Love shoved Johnson, who police say pulled a handgun and shot the Marine.

Police say they showed a photo array to several witnesses, each of whom identified Johnson as the man they saw shoot Love.

Police did not know if Johnson has an attorney.

Black on black crime, again. Ask me how I know. Why does an 18 year old carry a gun on his body while dancing? Thug.
