TITANS Detectives Arrest Man Wanted for July 7 Shooting in Public Housing

7/14/2021

Detectives from the MNPD’s TITANS (The Investigative Team Addressing Neighborhood Shootings) Unit today arrested Derrick Demartinez Holt, 33, for the July 7 shooting of a man in the 700 block of Lewis Street in J.C. Napier public housing.

The 39-year-old victim reported that Holt drove up to him, apparently thought he was someone else, and shot him in the groin. Surveillance video in the area helped lead to the identification of Holt as the shooter.

Arrest warrants charging Holt with felony aggravated assault and unlawful gun possession by a convicted felon were issued on July 8. A TITANS detective spotted Holt today on Trinity Lane near Lischey Avenue. Holt drove to Nocturne Drive and fled into an apartment before ultimately complying with police commands to come out.

Holt has prior convictions for robbery and felony cocaine possession. He is jailed tonight in lieu of $88,500 bond.
