Teen, uncle arrested in stabbing death outside Dundalk theater


A 17-year-old male and his uncle have been arrested in the fatal stabbing that occurred outside of a Dundalk movie theater Friday night. Baltimore County Police have charged Shawn Franklin Radomski, Jr. and 45-year-old William Frederick Rose, III, both of the 7900 block of Lansdale Rd.

Police had been called to the Flagship Cinemas after reports of a stabbing around 8:30 that night. When they got to the scene, they found Christopher Dale Trotter, 33, suffering from a stab wound in the parking lot of the movie theater. 

Trotter was taken to a local hospital where he was pronounced dead.

Police believe a verbal argument between Trotter and the suspects began at a nearby grocery store. When Trotter left, Radomski and his uncle followed him to the theater where they continued the argument inside. Theater security removed the duo but when Trotter finally left to walk home, both suspects and a “group of friends” followed him, assaulting him and stabbing him multiple times before fleeing.

Both suspects will be charged as adults with First Degree Murder; they are currently being held on no bail status at the county detention center.
