As rare as it may be, a high school sophomore was murdered in Annapolis over the weekend.
It’s the city’s seventh homicide.
17-year-old Terry Bosley was gunned down and left to die.
As a patrol SUV circle the block around President Street on Monday, neighbors say they only saw the aftermath of the shooting, but nothing before.
“He frequented that neighborhood. There were many people out and people did come when they found out he’d been shot,” Corporal Amy Miguez, a spokeswoman with the Annapolis Police Department, said.
Miguez says Terry just celebrated a birthday and was with friends that afternoon, when someone in the group turned and shot Terry in the head.
“So far the information that we’ve received is that he was walking with a group of people. We believe that one of them is the one that shot him and then they all fled,” Miguez said.
She says they got away in what’s being described as a ‘blue’ vehicle.
The principal at Phoenix Academy where Terry went to school called the sophomore ‘popular’ in a letter sent home to parents.
Enough, Miguez says, that should bring someone forward to talk in this case and figure out who shot Terry.
“We are getting a lot of information from the community, but we really need – we know there’s people out there who have details about what happened. Too many people were there for us not to get more information,” Miguez said.
There will be counselors and school psychologists at the high school for as long as students need them.
A GoFundMe confirmed by the school is set up to help with funeral costs.
Anne Arundel County police just had a community meeting on President Street addressing a previous shooting, now they’ll have another meeting scheduled for next Wednesday.
