Baltimore Police make arrest in Dollar Store killing



Baltimore Police have made an arrest in the killing of Deric Ford, Sr., a father of 12 who was fatally shot Tuesday in a Dollar General store in Edmondson Village.
Michael Thompson, 27, was charged in Ford’s death, police commissioner Kevin Davis said during a Saturday news conference.
Ford, a 54-year-old manager of the Dollar General, was shot minutes before the store in the West Baltimore shopping center closed at 10 p.m. Tuesday. A passerby flagged police to the strip mall, but Ford died shortly after reaching the hospital.
Davis said Thompson also has been charged with killing 33-year-old Michael Scott on April 24 on S. Calvert Street. Davis said Thompson killed Scott, of the 2400 block of Druid Park Drive, because “he felt disrespected.”

“Michael Thompson does not kill to protect himself, or even for personal gain,” Davis said. “But simply out of impulse and a reckless disregard for life.”
Davis said the same gun was used in both killings.

Davis, who faces murder, assault and gun charges, did not have an attorney listed in online court records.
