On June 9, Antonio Edwards, a 28-year-old African-American man who goes by the nickname “Dollar,” pleaded guilty to having a gun despite being a convicted felon. According to a press release from the U.S. Attorney for the District of Maryland, Edwards also admitted to the murder of Kinlaw Jones, a 21-year-old man whose race has been listed by police as “other.” Edwards allegedly shot Jones numerous times in the 1800 block of East Pratt Street in Upper Fells Point the day after Christmas in 2009. Edwards said he would plead guilty to the murder. If the plea goes as planned, Edwards will be sentenced to 25 years in prison.

Baltimore City Police Officer Gahiji Tshamba, a 37-year-old African-American man, was convicted of voluntary manslaughter on June 9. Tyrone Brown, a 32-year-old former Marine, left a club in Mount Vernon on June 5, 2010. He crossed paths with Tshamba, who had also been at a club. Brown grabbed the ass of a woman who was with Tshamba. Tshamba pulled out his gun, and after exchanging words with Brown, shot him 12 times. According to a Baltimore Sun article, the judge in the case believed that Tshamba was scared of Brown, but that drawing and firing his gun was an unreasonable response to Brown’s actions.
