BALTIMORE (WJZ) — Police have arrested a 35-year-old man accused of murdering a local firefighter.

John Hickey was found murdered in his Upper Fells Point apartment last week.

The suspect’s name has not been released at this time.

Baltimore police say a welfare check Thursday led them to the 1800 block of East Pratt St., where they found Hickey shot in the head inside his locked apartment.
