BALTIMORE — A 29-year-old man has been found guilty for his involvement in a fatal parking lot dispute in Northeast Baltimore.
According to court records, on November 30, 2018 at approximately 1:42 p.m., an officer was flagged down by a citizen in the 5000 block of Reisterstown road and was informed that someone had been shot nearby at the Hilltop Shopping Center.
In the parking lot, an officer found a black vehicle with the door open. Inside the car was the victim, Walter Page who was suffering from a gunshot wound. Medics transported Page to the hospital, but he was pronounced dead at 2 p.m.
Detectives collected evidence from the crime scene which included: a brown baseball hat, green knit hat, one brass .38 shell casing and the victim’s car.
An eyewitness told officials that a man had exited the driver seat of a Hyundai Elantra and after the victim exited his vehicle, the two got into an argument. Another individual ran towards the group with his right hand in his pocket and they began to assault the victim.
The two then fled on foot after Page was shot.
A jury returned a verdict of guilty for manslaughter and use of a handgun in the commission of a crime of violence. His sentencing is currently set for December 13 and faces up to 30 years.
