SALISBURY, Md.- A seventh suspect has been arrested by Maryland State Police in connection with last weekend's murder of a Salisbury man.

MSP said 21-year-old Brandon Yarns, of Salisbury, is currently being held on a fugitive warrant in Accomack County, Va.  Yarns' extradition to Maryland has been initiated at this time. 

Yarns was charged on a warrant with first- and second-degree murder, conspiracy to commit murder, first and second degree assault and reckless endangerment, according to police. 

Police said the Maryland State Apprehension Team was searching for Yarns prior to his arrest.  He was located in Horntown, Va. on Wednesday evening. 

Troopers said Yarns is the seventh and believed to be final suspect charged in connection with the murder of 32-year-old Tavin T. Molock. Police on Wednesday announced the arrests of four other suspects in Molock's death.

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.
