Suspect In Custody After Triple-Shooting At Baltimore County Hotel
BALTIMORE COUNTY - One suspect is in custody after a fatal triple-shooting at a Catonsville hotel, according to Baltimore County Police.
Police responded to reports of shots fired around 3:00 a.m. on Monday. Upon their arrival, they discovered three victims with gunshot injuries. One of the victims, 30-year-old Javier Argueta, was declared dead at the scene.
Police said that the other two men were transported to a local hospital and are expected to make a full recovery.
Charges against the detained individual are pending as the investigation proceeds.
Ryan Coleman, the president of Randallstown NAACP, expressed concern over the increasing criminal activities at Motel 6 in Catonsville, including drug trafficking and human trafficking.
"Motel 6 Catonsville has become a magnet for criminal behavior, including drug trafficking, prostitution, drug use, and human trafficking. The Randallstown NAACP will be requesting Motel 6 Catonsville / G6 Hospitality enter into a memorandum of understanding with the branch and Baltimore County government so all parties could address the issue together," Coleman said.
He called for a joint memorandum of understanding between the motel, the Baltimore County government, and the NAACP branch. The agreement would involve employing armed security, conducting guest background checks, and implementing a ban on nighttime visitors. Coleman further noted the NAACP's intention to extend similar collaborations to other local hotels.
