2 held without bond in Annapolis killing

Two Annapolis men were being held without bond yesterday in the shooting death of an Eastport man.

Annapolis police arrested Keith Deon Brown and Ryan Burton Wheeler, both 26, about 6 a.m. Saturday during simultaneous raids on their homes. They are accused of killing Jamore Van Johnson, 39.

Brown, of the 1800 block of Schooner Court, and Wheeler, of the 500 block of Royal St., were each charged with first-degree murder and related offenses.

Officer Kevin Freeman, a spokesman for the Annapolis Police Department, said yesterday that police recovered ammunition in the raids, but he did not know from which home or whether the bullets were linked to Johnson's shooting.

Johnson was fatally shot Oct. 12 outside his home in the 1100 block of Madison St. in the Harbor House apartment complex.

Brown and Wheeler are jailed at the Jennifer Road Detention Center.
