BALTIMORE — A man in Baltimore was convicted and sentenced to 80 years in prison for the attempted murder of two women.

On August 30, 2019, police responded to a shooting in the 600 block of S. Fremont Street and found a woman suffering from a gunshot wound.

The officer knew the victim from a prior incident. She was able to give officer the name and address of the suspect, Davon Roberts.

Another witness was identified and said she saw Roberts and the victim in the doorway of the residence. The witness reportedly intervened when Roberts tried preventing the victim from leaving the house. Roberts went to a car, grabbed a bag, pulled a gun from the trunk, and pointed it at the witness saying he was going to kill her.

He then shot the victim in the face and chest while saying “Die! Die!” The witness ran away as Roberts fired the gun in her direction.

“This conviction is yet another example of how accountability is key in our pursuit of justice. Through partnership and collaboration, domestic abusers that brutally beat their spouses and shoot them in the face, won’t see the light of day again," said State's Attorney Marilyn Mosby.
