A Maryland murder suspect was convicted of fatally shooting a man who died on Christmas Day two years ago.
On April 6, Joshua Toure, 26, was found guilty of first-degree felony murder, second-degree murder, robbery with a dangerous weapon and use of a firearm in the commission of a felony in connection to the slaying of 28-year-old Joseph Davis, WTOP reported.
The two got into a physical altercation, and Toure fired six shots at Davis, striking him three times before fleeing, police said.
Davis died three days later, and in February 2020, a confidential informant tipped authorities off that Toure and another man had planned the scheme to rob the victim during a marijuana deal.
A judge could sentence Toure up to life in prison plus an additional 20 years, according to WTOP.
“This sort of senseless violence within our neighborhoods is unacceptable,” State’s Attorney John McCarthy said. “It is a reminder about how dangerous and potentially life-threatening the buying and selling of drugs on the street can be.”
