An Anne Arundel County man was sentenced to 25 years in federal prison after he admitted to fatally shooting another man during an attempted carjacking in Baltimore’s Curtis Bay neighborhood in 2018.
Collin Davis, 34, of Pasadena, was sentenced Monday by U.S. District Court Judge Richard Bennett after he pleaded guilty to a charge of carjacking resulting in death in June, admitting in a plea agreement that he fatally shot Anthony Raynor on Sept. 25, 2018 while attempting to steal his car.
An attorney representing Davis could not be immediately reached for comment Monday afternoon.
According to the plea agreement, Raynor picked up Davis in Curtis Bay and the two traveled to Raynor’s hometown in Severn before they returned to Curtis Bay.
During the trip, Davis took control of the vehicle by force and tied Raynor’s hands behind his back using a shirt, the plea agreement reads.
When the two were back in Curtis Bay, Raynor attempted to escape and Davis shot him several times while the two were stopped in the area of the 5100 block of Curtis Avenue, the plea agreement reads.
A witness saw Raynor’s body being dragged into the street, the agreement says, and called police who later found him lying in the middle of the street. Raynor would be pronounced dead after being taken to a local hospital.
After shooting Raynor, Davis parked the vehicle in an alley “directly behind an apartment where Davis had lived with his sister only weeks before the murder,” according to the agreement, and left the neighborhood that night. Police found the vehicle the next day and identified bullet holes related to Raynor’s death inside.
Davis was arrested in November 2018 and police found a revolver and shotgun in his apartment, the agreement reads.
In a statement, Acting U.S. Attorney Jonathan Lenzer said Davis’ sentence “demonstrates we will always hold murderers like Davis accountable.”
