He’s “an absolute poster child for what a repeat offender is in Baltimore City,” Davis said.
Police say he’s a Black Guerilla Family member and has been linked to at least a dozen murders, including the death of Alfonso Williams.
On May 3, 2013, police say a man, now identified as Barronette walked up to Williams on West Lafayette Avenue and shot him over and over again.READ MORE: Mayor's Christmas Parade Returns To North Baltimore Sunday
Barronette frequented the areas of Sandtown-Winchester, Pedestal Gardens and Pennsylvania Avenue, and “terrorized those communities,” according to Davis.
“We are still following up on numerous, numerous cases that we believe Barronette is responsible for. Remember his name. You’ll hear it again very soon.”
Police were able to bring charges against him as part of the city’s “War Room” strategy, which targets repeat violent offenders.MORE NEWS: Owings Mills Man, 23, Charged For Selling Fake COVID-19 Vaccine Cards On Social Media
