Man charged with first murder in Annapolis of 2011

Police have charged Clifton William Tutt, 54, with the Tuesday-morning shooting death of a teenager in Annapolis. It is the city's first homicide in 2011.

Teon Leander Wallace, 19, was shot in his upper torso around 10:30 a.m. in the 1000 block of Monroe St., according to an evening statement by the Annapolis Police Department.

Wallace, of Annapolis, was pronounced dead at the Anne Arundel Medical Center.

Tutt, also from Annapolis, was found near the scene of the shooting, police said. He was interviewed and charged with first- and second-degree murder and weapons violations.

The victim was being sought by police in connection with threatening to shoot a woman in July and for armed robbery in August, the statement said.

Police said they did not yet know the circumstances of the shooting. Tutt is being held without bail, police said.

According to police, there were four homicides in Annapolis last year.
