Baltimore Murder Suspect Arrested as a Fugitive in Martinsburg
On July 27, 2017 at approximately 12:05 pm, officers with the Martinsburg Police Department responded to the area of 100 East Martin Street in an attempt to identify a person of interest. Officers Shane Everhart and Scott Shelton stopped a subject who identified himself as Jonathan Duncan. Officers did not believe this to be his actual name and during their interaction, they discovered marijuana on his person and he was taken into custody. Shortly thereafter, officers confirmed the subject’s true identity to be Brandon Delanis Booth (DOB: 2/10/1986) of Baltimore, MD. He was subsequently confirmed to be wanted by the State of Maryland for charges of First-Degree Murder, First-Degree Assault, and related weapons charges. Mr. Booth was transported to the Berkeley County Magistrate Court and arraigned on a charge of being a fugitive from justice. Pending extradition proceedings, Mr. Booth will be transferred to the custody of the State of Maryland where he will be arraigned on his outstanding charges.
The Martinsburg Police Department thanks the United States Marshals Service and Mountain State Fugitive Task Force for providing information that lead to this arrest.
