Sixth Murder Suspect in Rockwell St. Shooting Custody

(Harford County, MD) — Harford County Sheriff’s detectives have now arrested a sixth suspect in the December 9, 2003 shooting death of Antonio Gerard Allen, 24, of Baltimore, Md. Allen was shot to death behind 2035 Rockwell St. in Edgewood. The shooting was drug related.

On Wednesday February 26th, Justin Eugene Bolden, 21, of 2737 Forge Hill Road, Street, Maryland was arrested by detectives at his home. Bolden is the sixth suspect arrested in Allen’s murder. He was arrested without incident and charged with 1st and 2nd degree murder, assault, and robbery. Bolden, the brother of Reginald Bolden, another suspect in this murder, is being held without bond in the Harford County Detention Center.

Detectives say since Allen’s death in December they have worked a number of leads that have helped to identify the suspects involved, including receiving a tip that Bolden was involved. Leads like the recent tip from Harford County Crime Solvers that lead to the arrest of Quintin Twyman are providing police with the information they need to further their investigation.

On February 22nd, an anonymous tip to Harford County Crime Solvers 24 hour tip line led to the arrest of Quintin E. Twyman, aka Quin, 20, of 47 Defense Drive, Aberdeen, Maryland. Twyman has been charged with 1st and 2nd degree murder. Police received the tip from Crime Solvers after a caller telephoned the hotline providing information on the whereabouts of Twyman. The tip led uniformed deputies from the Sheriff’s Office Southern Precinct to 220 Mayberry Drive where Twyman was found in apartment 203. He was arrested without incident. Twyman was the fifth suspect to be arrested in Allen’s death. Leads had taken police to New Jersey and back to Maryland but until the Crime Solvers tip, they did not know where he was. He is being held without bond in the Harford County Detention Center.

Reginald Leon Bolden, aka Reggie, of 2737 Forge Hill Road, Bel Air was arrested during the week of February 16th, after turning himself into police.

Yamar Auntrez Martin, aka Unice, 21, LKA of 621 Wingleaf Court, Edgewood was arrested on December 23rd by police from Middletown, New Jersey, Police Department during an undercover drug buy. Martin was apprehended and initially gave police a false name. A check of his fingerprints revealed he was wanted by the Harford County Sheriff’s Office for murder. He remains held in the Monmouth County (NJ) Detention Center in lieu of 1.1million dollars bond pending extradition proceedings.

Detectives had arrested Donte Henson, aka "Sharkey", 21, of 2109 Kalmia Rd. Bel Air, Maryland, and Lamont Keith Jones 17, (juvenile charged as an adult) of 74 Swan St. Aberdeen, Maryland within days after the murder and charged them with 1st and 2nd degree murder. Both are being held without bail in the Harford County Detention Center.

Detectives believe all six suspects are responsible for the shooting death of Antonio Gerard Allen, 24, of Baltimore, Md. At 11:54pm on Tuesday December 9th, deputies responded to the 2000 block of Rockwell St. in Edgewood for a shots fired call. Deputies arriving at the scene discovered Allen had been shot to death. Initial information provided to deputies suggested the victim was visiting friends at 2035 Rockwell St. and had gone out to the store. Upon his return to Rockwell St. witnesses observed him surrounded by several subjects. Witnesses then reported hearing a gunshot and saw the suspects run from the area. Witnesses described the suspect vehicle as a maroon GMC SUV.

At 12:02am, several minutes after the shooting, sheriff’s deputies patrolling Rt. 40 in Aberdeen observed a 1997 maroon GMC Yukon approaching Rt. 40 from Rt. 7. Deputies attempted to stop the vehicle however the vehicle’s driver refused and a pursuit ensued. The subjects bailed out of their car in the area of Rt. 7 and Perryman Road. Four subjects were apprehended and taken to the Sheriff’s Office for questioning. The Yukon was impounded at the Sheriff’s Office. The subjects were interviewed regarding the homicide but there was insufficient probable cause to hold the subjects and they were released. The Yukon however remained in police custody and was subsequently searched. Evidence recovered from the Yukon was compared with evidence recovered at the scene. A link to the crime scene was made placing the Yukon at the murder scene.

Anyone having information is asked to call the Harford County Sheriff’s Office Criminal Investigation Division at 410-836-5431. All information will be held strictly confidential.
