BALTIMORE (WJZ) — A Pasadena man pleaded guilty Tuesday in U.S. District Court to shooting and killing a man who tried to escape a carjacking in Curtis Bay, the U.S. Attorney’s Office for the District of Maryland said Wednesday.
Collin Davis, 34, and the victim traveled to Severn, after the victim picked up Davis in Curtis Bay on Sept. 15, 2018, according to a statement from the office. They drove back to Curtis Bay an hour later. During the drive at some point, the victim’s car was stopped, and Davis took control of it by force. He restrained the victim by tying a shirt around the victim’s hands behind his back, and Davis’ DNA was later found on the car’s steering wheel and inside the knot of the shirt, according to the statement.READ MORE: U.S. Coast Guard Places Francis Scott Key Memorial Buoy In Patapsco River
