BALTIMORE — A Baltimore man was found guilty of first degree murder and being a disqualified person in possession of a regulated firearm.
31-year-old Anderson Covel Jr. faces a maximum sentence of life plus thirty five years.
According to court documents, in May 2019, at approximately 6:15 a.m., Covel parked his car on the 400 block of E. 21st Street and was captured on CCTV video, pacing around the area. A few minutes later, the victim, Donnie Walton, was walking down the sidewalk to his home.
Covel noticed Walton and crossed the street to confront him. During that confrontation, Covel produced a firearm and shot Walton multiple times before fleeing the scene.
Walton was transported to the R. Adams Cowley Shock Trauma Center where he died of his injuries.
