Police arrested Green, of the 3400 block of Ireland Drive, while he was out walking in the area of Rosehill Road.

Green is charged with first-degree murder, robbery with a dangerous weapon, and conspiracy to commit robbery with a dangerous weapon.

Police said that because Green had a stolen handgun at the time he was taken into custody, he was also charged with possession of a firearm by a convicted felon.

Green is being held on no bond at the Cumberland County Detention Center.

Four others are already in custody.
