Anne Arundel County Police have made an arrest in the murder of Danielle Gunson in late September. See our prior coverage here, here, and here.

The following is a release form the Anne Arundel County Police Department.

As the investigation continued over the next few weeks, Anne Arundel County Homicide detectives were able to link the murder of Danielle Gunson to the attempted murder of Terence John Caruso Jr. On Thursday, September 27, 2018 at approximately 12:45 p.m., Terence Caruso was found shot in the area of Johns Hopkins Road in Gambrills, Maryland. Terence Caruso was transported to a local hospital and is expected to survive his injuries.

During the course of the investigation detectives, identified Liam Cameron Penn, a twenty-five year old male from the 2600 block of Bunker Hill Road, Woodstock, Maryland, as a suspect in the murder of Danielle Gunson and attempted murder of Terence Caruso. Investigation revealed Terence Caruso and Danielle Gunson were with Penn during the early morning hours of Thursday, September 27, 2018. The investigation further revealed that Penn pulled off the roadway in the area of Saint Stephens Church Road and Johns Hopkins Road in Crownsville, Maryland, and shot Terence Caruso and Danielle Gunson. Penn then transported Danielle Gunson’s body to the 100 block of Riverside Road in Baltimore City, leaving her body there. Penn left Terence Caruso behind in Crownsville, Maryland.

On Monday, October 29, 2018, homicide detectives obtained an arrest warrant charging Liam Penn with the murder of Danielle Gunson and the attempted murder of Terence Caruso.

The suspect was taken into custody without incident in the 2600 block of Bunker Hill Road, Woodstock, Maryland.

This investigation is very fluid and active but the information developed indicates this was a targeted attack and not a random act of violence.
