SALISBURY, Md.- A Wicomico County jury on Monday convicted a Salisbury man on Monday of second-degree murder in connection to a deadly shooting that happened outside a VFW in 2017.

Dionte Keith Dutton, 36, was also convicted of first- and second-degree assault, conspiracy to commit first-degree assault, use of a firearm in the commission of a crime of violence, illegal possession of a regulated firearm, transporting a firearm in a vehicle and reckless endangerment after a five-day jury trial presided over by Judge S. James Sarbanes. 

Following Dutton's conviction, Sarbanes ordered a mandatory pre-entence investigation.

Prosecutors said that on June 10, 2017, Jaquanta Walton was shot outside of the Veterans of Foreign Wars Post located at 821 W. Main St. in Salisbury. After the shooting, Walton was pronounced dead at Peninsula Regional Medical Center.

Lee Braboy, a co-defendant, was convicted by a Wicomico County jury of murder in this case on March 7, 2019.
