Two of three suspects arrested in Locust Point murder

Posted at 11:52 AM, Nov 15, 2017

UPDATE: Baltimore Police say that two of the three suspects wanted for the murder of Alex Wroblewski are in custody in Atlanta, Georgia. Baltimore Police were originally told all three suspects had been found. Police say Tonya Hayes and a 23-year-old man thought to be her boyfriend are in custody with Atlanta law enforcement officials. Baltimore Police Officers are enroute to conduct a search and seizure warrant. 

The 20-year-old male suspect is still on the loose and thought to be Hayes' son; police believe he is also in the Atlanta area. The initial confusion came when a car was stopped that included some of the suspects and other occupants. Investigators believe the three suspects left the Baltimore area by car immediately after the murder in order to arrive in Atlanta so quickly. 

In a press conference, police spokesman T.J. Smith credited multiple tips from the public which helped both identify and locate the suspects quickly. 

The two suspects were arrested after 41-year-old Alex Wroblewski died early Tuesday morning. He was shot in the stomach on his way home from work and later died in the hospital, according to police.

Baltimore Police originally identified one of the suspects earlier on Wednesday afternoon. They said community tips helped identify Tonya Hayes, who is originally from Baltimore.

Police said they do not believe Hayes pulled the trigger, but she may have witnessed the shooting. Officers have not released the names or any additional information about the other two suspects that were arrested.
