A 2011 shooting in Crofton has been ruled a homicide after the victim died of complications from his injuries Saturday night, police said.
Police on Tuesday announced a reward of up to $10,000 for information leading to the arrest and conviction of the person or persons responsible for the shooting that led to the death of Teyon Jones, 26, of Glen Burnie.
The incident occurred Aug. 7, 2011, at about 2:20 a.m. in the area of Judicial Way and Lower Court in Crofton. Police learned a party was being held and shots rang out.
As police were on the scene, officers were dispatched to Anne Arundel Medical Center in Glen Burnie, where a gunshot victim, later identified as Jones, had just been driven by three friends, police said.
Jones was suffering from a gunshot wound to the upper body and was transported to Maryland Shock Trauma Center in Baltimore, police said. Although Jones initially survived his injuries, his quality of life was "adversely affected," police said.
Police investigated the incident, collected evidence and interviewed witnesses, but made no arrests.
On Saturday, while under medical care, Jones was pronounced dead, police said. The Office of the Chief Medical Examiner in Baltimore ruled his cause of death was complications from the gunshot wound he received in August 2011. The case was ruled a homicide.
