BALTIMORE — The killer of a man who was ambushed while riding his bicycle received two life sentences following his conviction on first-degree murder and other charges.

On Sept. 27, 2016, Baltimore Police responded to the 3500 block of Woodland Avenue for a reported shooting at about 1 p.m., according to the narrative laid out by the Baltimore State’s Attorney’s Office. There they found Tony Williams suffering from multiple gunshot wounds to his back and legs. He died about a month later on Oct. 22, 2016. His death was ruled a homicide.

Investigators found surveillance video from an apartment complex that showed Williams ride into the apartment’s parking lot on a bike. The footage then showed a man who had been standing with a group of other men walk over to Williams and shoot him at close range. The shooter then fled to a nearby car that left the parking lot.

Through photo arrays and witness identification, police determined the shooter was Malcolm Jordan. He was arrested on Nov. 16, 2016. Williams was eventually found guilty by a jury of first-degree murder, conspiracy to murder, use of a firearm in a crime of violence, and being a prohibited person in possession of a firearm.

Monday, the State’s Attorney’s Office announced Jordan was sentenced to two concurrent life sentences for Williams’ murder.
