A jury convicted Keith Davis Jr. of the murdering Kevin Jones, a 22-year-old African-American man who was shot just before 5 a.m. as he was heading to work as a security guard on June 7, 2015. Later that day, police shot Davis, after he hid in a garage allegedly after trying to rob a hack cabbie. The case became a cause célèbre for local activists; Davis claimed he had been minding his own business, unarmed and listening to headphones, when police rushed him. The gun they recovered in the garage had Davis' palm print on it though, and a ballistics expert claimed it was the gun used to kill Jones. Before he was charged with Jones' murder, a Baltimore jury acquitted Davis of robbery, but convicted him of illegally having the gun (prior criminal convictions bar him from possessing a firearm). He is serving a five year sentence for that, and now faces much more time for the murder.
