Annapolis Police say the teen who was shot in the head Saturday afternoon has died from his injuries; he has been identified as 17-year-old Terry Bosley.

Just before 5 p.m. Saturday, officers responded to President Street, between Van Buren and Monroe Streets for a report of a shooting.  

Upon arrival police discovered the victim suffering from one gunshot wound to the head.  

He had been rushed to an area hospital with life-threatening injuries.  

Police believe Terry was walking with a group of friends on President Street, when one person known to him from the group shot him and then fled with the group members in a small blue vehicle.  

“This is an outrageous act of violence to a juvenile in our community,” said Chief Scott Baker.  “We just met with the Eastport community on November 14th and have another meeting scheduled for January 16th. We urge community members to come to that meeting and work together on these serious issues of crime and safety.”

Anyone who may have information is urged to contact Detective Tom Pyles or Detective Charles Bealefeld at 410-260-3439 or tnpyles@annapolis.gov or cebealefeld@annapolis.gov. If people wish to remain anonymous they can also contact the Annapolis Police Tip Line at 410-280-CLUE or Metro Crime Stoppers.
