BALTIMORE (WMAR) -
A Baltimore jury has convicted Frederick Morrison for fatally shooting a man in the Shipley Hill neighborhood during the summer of 2011.
On July 15, 2011, officers responded to a call for a shooting in the unit block of Franklintown Road. Upon arrival they discovered David McKoy, lying on the ground suffering from a gunshot wound. He later died at a local hospital.
The investigation revealed that McKoy was standing in the block when Morrison approached him, pulled out a handgun and shot him several times in the back.
Morrison then ran to a vehicle and fled the area.
After a 5-day trial, the jury found Morrison, 29, guilty of second degree murder, use of a handgun in the commission of a crime of violence and possession of a regulated firearm after a disqualifying conviction.
Morrison is set to be sentenced on April 3, and faces a maximum sentence of 55 years in prison.
