For the Record
Arrest: City police said yesterday that Troy Donte Mayo, 20, of the 700 block of Wharton Court, was arrested June 11 and charged with first-degree murder and a handgun violation in the fatal shooting of Leroy Jones, 25, of the 3300 block of Bloomingdale Road. Jones was working on his car in the 2000 block of Hollins St. June 9 when he was shot in the head by a man with whom he was talking. Jones died the next day at Maryland Shock Trauma Center. A witness' description of a car leaving the scene led to Mayo's arrest outside his home, said Detective Scott Serio. Serio said both men knew each other but that he knew of no motive for the slaying. Mayo is being held without bail at the Central Booking and Intake Center.
