BALTIMORE (AP) — Baltimore police say they have a person in custody in the killing of a grandmother at a church last month.
The police department announced Wednesday night that it has detained someone in Evelyn Player’s death and that city officials would have a news conference Thursday.
Police didn’t name the suspect or give any details about possible charges or a motive.
Police Commissioner Michael Harrison said in a statement that he’s grateful for the investigative work that led to the identification of the perpetrator.
A day after 69-year-old Player was found dead inside the Southern Baptist Church, Gov. Larry Hogan offered a $100,000 reward for information leading to the arrest and conviction of whoever is responsible for her death.
