Murders This Week: 2
Murders This Year: 73

The death of Lloyd Arrowood was ruled a homicide this week. Arrowood, a 53-year-old Caucasian man, was originally attacked on Oct. 13, 2003. He was standing in the 1800 block of Ramsay Street in Southwest Baltimore’s Carrollton Ridge neighborhood at about 7:40 p.m. when his roommate John Kozak, a Caucasian man who is now 29, came outside swinging a piece of wood. He hit the victim several times in the head before running back into the house. Arrowood was taken to Maryland Shock Trauma Center bleeding from the head. He was eventually released but continued to have headaches and seizures. He died on March 11, 2005, at 6:35 p.m. The Medical Examiner soon ruled that his death was a result of the beating. Kozak pled guilty to the crime in 2003 and received a 10-year sentence, five of which were suspended.

Thursday, April 21

1:50 a.m. A man was walking to the Shell gas station in the 5300 block of Frankford Avenue in Northeast Baltimore to buy some cigarettes when he saw a man lying beside a car at the station. He thought the man was working on the car so he called out to him. There was no response. As he got closer he saw blood. He called 911. When police officers got there they found Shadrick Woah-Tee, a 39-year-old African-American man, who had been shot in the arm and upper torso. Woah-Tee was pronounced dead about half an hour later at Johns Hopkins Bayview Medical Center.
