WARREN -- Warren police late Tuesday arrested Derrick Peete, 22, of Webb Avenue S.W., in connection to the fatal shooting of 32-year-old Marco Dukes on Sunday morning.
Peete, who police said has ties to Detroit, was charged with aggravated murder and faces an arraignment Thursday morning. He was arrested without incident at 7:20 p.m. Tuesday at a friend's home on Kenilworth Avenue S.E.
That came after officers earlier had arrested but then Tuesday morning released Reginald F. Baldwin, 21, of Detroit. Baldwin was arrested with Hatch near the corner of High Street and Vine Avenue N.E. minutes after Sunday's shooting about two blocks away on Elm Court. N.E. Detectives said this morning that prosecutors advised them there was not enough evidence to hold Baldwin.
Gunfire broke out on Elm Court between Market and High streets just before 10:30 a.m. Sunday, according to reports. Police said it was apparent that assault weapons were used in the shootings. Officers recovered numerous shell casings in a parking lot in that area.
Dukes' cousin, Larry Smith, 29, 2305 Jackson St., S.W., Warren, also was shot. He remains in Trumbull Memorial Hospital.
