SALISBURY, Md.- Police have made an arrest in the murder of Dominic Jones, who was shot to death on Patrick Avenue in Salisbury on Monday.  The suspect is identified as Deonte Lamont Grant, 29, who has no fixed address, but has previously lived in the Salisbury area.

Maryland State Police believe Jones and Grant were involved in an ongoing dispute, possibly due to a domestic issue.  Investigators said Jones went to the home on the 400 block of Patrick Avenue, where he was shot by Grant in or near the front entrance.

Members of the MSP State Apprehension Team conducted surveillance at a home in Camp Springs, Maryland in Prince George's County, and took Grant into custody. Troopers transported Grant back to Wicomico County where he was held without bond in the detention center.

The investigation is continuing.  Despite several searches, the gun used in this murder has not been recovered.  Investigators will continue to look for that and any other evidence connected to this crime. 

Grant is charged with first- and second-degree murder, first- and second-degree assault, reckless endangerment, use of a firearm in the commission of a felony or crime of violence, and wearing/carrying a handgun. He is being held without bond in the Wicomico County Detention Center.

A preliminary hearing is scheduled for the District Court for Wicomico County on Aug. 1.
