Baltimore Police say they've arrested a second woman in connection with a deadly triple shooting Labor Day weekend.

Police believe Toniasha Manique Johnson handed the gun to suspected shooter Marion Daughton before Daughton allegedly opened fire on East Monument Street.

Daniel Smalls, 34, was killed and two women were injured in the shooting. One of the injured women was pregnant and later delivered her baby safely.

Johnson is charged with first-degree murder, second-degree murder and conspiracy to commit murder among other charges.

Daughton, 31, was arrested Tuesday. She is facing 27 charges including first-degree murder.

Police believe both women are members of the Bloods street gang.

"One thing with all three of these cases is there's premeditation in all of them, so that's how you get to the first-degree murder charge," Commissioner Kevin Davis said.

Police also released video in two other recent shootings at the Wednesday afternoon press conference.

Security camera footage taken in the 900 block of Mcaleer Ct. Saturday evening around 8 p.m. shows a suspect leaving a gathering of people then returning, firing a weapon, and running away from the scene. Police believe that person is responsible for shooting and injuring a 4-year-old girl, 6-year-old boy, and 61-year-old woman. 

"It does look like there was some kind of shootout going on and in between the shootout were these vulnerable victims who were caught in the crossfire of this incident," said Baltimore Police spokesman T.J. Smith.

Other people can be scene in the video near where the shooting happened. Police are asking for anyone who witnessed the incident to come forward.

"Technology has done its part here and now the community needs to do its part as well. We wouldn’t be where we are with the triple shooting on East Monument Street without the community helping us develop those criminal charges," said Baltimore Police Commissioner Kevin Davis.


Police also released surveillance images of the person they believe shot and killed a man at a convenience store located at 4662 York Road Friday afternoon.

"That trigger puller went up at 1:30 in the afternoon without a care in the world and executed a man on the streets of Baltimore. Without help, he’s going to remain on the streets and he’s going to kill again. And if you think that a person that can walk up to York Road and Cold Spring Lane at 1:30 in the afternoon and go point blank range execute a man is doing this for his first time, I think we’re all wrong if we believe that," Smith said.

Anyone with information about the shootings can text a tip to 443-902-4824 or call a detective directly at 410-396-2100.
