Arrest in MLK Bridge Shooting

An arrest has been made in the shooting of a man on the Martin Luther King Bridge last week.

At approximately 2 p.m. on Thursday, April 26, a 45-year-old man called police after he was shot.

At approximately 2 p.m. today, the Capital Area Regional Fugitive Task Force arrested Thomas L. Gilmore, 19, of the 500 block of North 19th Street, and charged him with malicious wounding and use of a firearm during the commission of a felony in connection with this crime.

Detectives would like to thank members of the community who stepped forward to help with this investigation, which enabled detectives to quickly obtain warrants for Gilmore.

Though this investigation is ongoing, detectives are not looking for any other suspects at this time.
