SALISBURY, Md.- Four more suspects have been arrested in connection with Sunday's murder of a man in Wicomico County. That brings to six the total number of arrests so far.

Maryland State Police identified the four suspects as Hammond C. Taylor Jr., 23, Edward T. Winder, 24, Eddie D. Smith 2nd , 34, and Raymond J. Murray Jr., 27, all of Salisbury.

Each suspect has been charged with first- and second-degree murder, conspiracy to commit first- and second-degree murder, first- and second-degree assault and reckless endangerment. They were transported to the Wicomico County Detention Center for booking and an initial appearance before a court commissioner.

Police said Taylor was arrested about 3 p.m. Tuesday in the Salisbury area. Winder turned himself in at the Salisbury Police Department about 4 p.m. Tuesday. Smith was arrested when he showed up at the Salisbury Police Department late Tuesday afternoon. Murray was arrested by Salisbury Police Department officers about 1 a.m. Wednesday while riding a bicycle in west Salisbury.

The suspects are charged in connection with the murder of 32-year-old Tavin T. Molock, of Salisbury.

Molock was found injured in the 400-block of Bethel Street by responding Salisbury police officers shortly before 11:30 a.m. Sunday. Molock later died at the hospital.

An autopsy confirmed the manner of his death was homicide. The cause of death is being withheld by investigators at this time due its importance to the ongoing investigation, according to police.

The Maryland State Police Homicide Unit investigation led to the identification of the four suspects, in addition to 39-year-old Brandi D. Upshur and 23-year-old Genequa T. Winder, who were arrested for first- and second-degree murder earlier this week. Police said the investigation indicates Molock was assaulted by several individuals while he was walking in the 400-block of Bethel Street in Salisbury.

Police said additional arrests and charges are possible.
