Last month, officers responded to the 1100 block of Tace Drive, where they found two shooting victims. Police later ruled one, 27-year-old Jessica Holly Diotte, as a homicide.

Dorsey has been charged with first-degree murder, attempted first-degree murder, a felon in possession of a firearm, and possession of a controlled dangerous substance with the intent to distribute.

He is being held at the Baltimore County Department of Corrections on a denied bond status.
