CAMBRIDGE, Md.- Authorities have two suspects in custody in connection with the fatal shooting of a Salisbury man in Cambridge earlier this week.
Cambridge police announced Thursday the arrests of 19-year-old Glen Dewitt Wilson of no fixed address in Cambridge and 20-year old Brandon Jamar Sampson of no fixed address, also of Cambridge.
Wilson and Sampson have been charged with first-degree murder, first-degree armed robbery, first-degree attempted robbery and first- and second-degree assault. They are both being held without bond in the Dorchester County Detention Center.
Police said that shortly after 10 p.m. on Monday, officers responded to a shooting that had occurred in the area of Park Lane and Willis Street. When officers arrived on the scene, they found the victim, 21-year-old La'Bryan Deonte Jones, suffering from a single gunshot wound to the head.
Jones received treatment from officers before he was transported to Dorchester General Hospital. He was treated and stabilized at Dorchester General before being transported to the University of Maryland Shock Trauma Center in Baltimore for further treatment. At approximately 3:31 a.m. Tuesday, while en route to Shock Trauma, Jones succumbed to his injuries and was pronounced dead.
The investigation into this incident is continuing and police said more arrests are expected. Anyone with information is asked to contact the Cambridge Police Criminal Investigation Division at (410) 228-3333.
