On Friday, Baltimore police announced the arrest of a 27-year-old man suspected of stabbing a rising Baltimore rapper. After the stabbing, rapper Tyree Colion took to Facebook Live to stream the aftermath of his attack. Within the first 24 hours, the 3 ½-minute video was viewed over 40,000 times.
Police arrested Andre Coleman, 24, in connection with the stabbing of Colion, whose given name is Tyree Moorehead. The incident took place in the 1700 block of East 29th Street around 11:30 p.m. Sunday.
T.J. Smith, Baltimore police spokesman, described the stabbing as being “domestic in nature” and unrelated to Colion’s activism and music.
Coleman, of Northeast Baltimore, has been charged with attempted first- and second-degree murder and other related charges.
An arrest was also made in connection with a double shooting that took place in the 3300 block of West Baltimore Street. One of the men was later pronounced dead and the other is expected to recover from his injuries.
Twenty-three-year-old Dwayne Torrence was charged with first- and second-degree murder. Information provided by community members and surveillance video footage of the incident helped police identify Torrence. A second shooter involved in the case is on the run.
Joseph Coats, 18, was charged in connection with two separate robberies. The first robbery took place on Clipper Heights Avenue on May 12. Coats allegedly hit a motorcycle with a minivan. He then jumped on the motorcycle and fled the scene. The motorcyclist was not injured during the incident.
Coats was also charged in connection with a robbery that took place on 42nd Street on Sunday.
