Three charged in killing of man who was shot 21 times

A 30-year-old man killed last summer in West Baltimore was shot 21 times with two different handguns, according to documents filed in the charging of three people.

Edward Ellis, 24, and Zebary Pearson Jr., 27, both of Abingdon, and Antoine Dorsey, 22, of Baltimore have been charged with first-degree murder in the fatal shooting of Jermaine Blue on July 28, 2012 in the 1400 block of Poplar Grove St. 

According to court records, Blue, who lived in the nearby 2900 block of Presstman St., got into an early-morning argument with the three defendants, and Pearson and Ellis began assaulting him when Dorsey pulled out a handgun and shot him several times.

Detective Martin Young wrote that Blue was shot 21 times with two different guns, with crime scene investigators recovering several 9 mm shell casings. 

Police said witnesses identified the suspects through photo lineups. It was not clear what the victim and suspects were arguing about.
