2 Charged in Towson Man's Murder
Al-Sawab Sawab died after suffering from multiple gun shot wounds, police said.
Baltimore County police have charged two men in connection with the murder of a 27-year-old Towson man.
Kenneth Johnson, 22, and Deonte Robinson, 18, were charged in connection with the death, according to a police statement.
Police said Johnson and Robinson went to Sawab's apartment to buy marijuana. A confrontation ensued when Johnson did not have enough money to pay Sawab, and Robinson pulled out a handgun, according to the statement. Robinson allegedly fired at Sawab, and continued to do so as the victim attempted to flee.
Johnson and Robinson took the marijuana with them when they left the scene, police said.
Johnson, of the 1200 block of Walters Avenue in Baltimore, was arrested on January 15 and charged with one count of first-degree murder and one count of use of a firearm during a felony crime, according to the statement. Police obtained a warrant for Robinson, of the unit block of Polaris Court in Parkville, on Jan. 23.
A booking photo for Robinson was not immediately available.
