BALTIMORE — A man is waiting to see a court commissioner for a murder that happened in the 2200 block of Reisterstown Road last year.

Byron Lewis has been charged with the first-degree murder of Shammarh Jenkins.

According to detectives, in June 2021, Jenkins was in front of his home playing cards when an unknown assailant approached, spoke to the 32-year-old, and shot him.

Detectives would comb over video footage and speak to several potential witnesses before identifying Lewis.

Members of the Warrant Task Force arrested Lewis on December 8 in his home without incident.
