UPDATE: Seventh suspect found in Va. in connection with the murder of a Salisbury man

SALISBURY, Md. - A seventh suspect was arrested on Wednesday night in Virginia in connection with the murder of a man four days ago in Wicomico County.

The suspect is identified as 21-year-old Brandon Yarns of Salisbury. He is charged on a warrant with first degree murder, second degree murder, conspiracy to commit murder, first degree assault, second degree assault and reckless endangerment.

Yarns is currently being held on a fugitive warrant in the Accomack County Detention Center. Extradition proceedings have started to return him to Maryland.

State Police investigators received an arrest warrant for Yarns and a search was underway for him by the Maryland State Apprehension Team. Members of that team found Yarns at 6:00 PM on Wednesday in Horntown, Virginia. He was arrested without incident.

Yarns is the seventh and believed to be the final suspect to be charged in connection with the murder of 32-year-old Tavin Molock of Salisbury.

Molock was found injured in the 400 Block of Bethel Street by responding Salisbury Police Department officers shortly before 11:30 AM last Sunday. Molock later died at the hospital.
