Eastport Terrace man is shot to death

An Eastport Terrace man was shot to death outside his home Sunday night after an argument over a woman, Annapolis police reported.

According to the police report, Vincent Jones, 20, of the 1100 block of Eastport Terrace was arguing with an unidentified man about 9:30 p.m.

"The details are sketchy right now about the argument," said Officer Scott Collins, a department spokesman. "The family is dumbfounded by all this, and I don't think they have been able to tell us much."

Mr. Jones and the man stopped the fight, but began talking again a short time later. About that time, a gunman walked up to Mr. Jones and opened fire, police said.

The gunman and the man Mr. Jones had been arguing with drove off in a small, dark-red car. Mr. Jones, who had multiple gunshot wounds, walked into his home and collapsed, police said.

He was flown by MedEvac helicopter to the Maryland Shock Trauma Center in Baltimore, where he was pronounced dead at 4:43 a.m. yesterday.

Dimitri Troy Weston, 25, of the 400 block of Oak Lawn Ave. in Annapolis surrendered to police at the station on Taylor Avenue shortly after noon yesterday, Officer Collins said.

He was charged with first-degree murder and was being held without bond in the County Detention Center.

Police are still trying to identify the man Mr. Jones was talking with when he was slain.
