BALTIMORE — On Tuesday, 28-year-old Eric Bowman was sentenced to life plus 30 years and his brother, 26-year-old Steven Bowman was sentenced to life plus 25 years for the murder of Randall Finney, Jr., in September 2018.

Officials say in September 2018 at around 11:35 a.m. officers responded to a shooting in the Belair-Edison community and found the victim with multiple gunshot wounds to his head, neckm back and leg. Detectives found an eight .40 caliber spent shell casings at the scene.

Following an investigation, it was revealed that on the day of the shooting, 32-year-old Randall Finney arrived at the home on Balfern Avenue to check on his son after learning that the police were called earlier that day for an argument between his child's mother and defendant, Steven Bowman.

Police say Steven also pulled up to the mother's home as Finney arrived. Steven immediately exited his vehicle, produced a gun, and began shooting at Finney. Steven’s brother, Eric Bowman — who lived a few houses away — exited his home and walked towards the shooting and also opened fire on Finney.

After the shooting, both brothers left in Steven’s vehicle and fled the scene.
