Johnson has been charged with first-degree murder in the death of Darlene Randall Sunday morning.

MacAulay's office says just before 2 AM early Sunday morning, officers responded to the 3700 block of Herbert Avenue for the report of a home invasion. There, they found Randall suffering from a gunshot wound. She died as a result of her injuries at a local hospital.
