Baltimore City's 2009 Homicide Total Rises To 218

December 05, 2009|By Justin Fenton | Justin Fenton , justin.fenton@baltsun.com

Police said two more victims wounded in earlier years have been added to this year's city homicide total.

Police said Tavon Waters, 26, who was shot Oct. 18, 2006, while sitting in a truck parked in the 2800 block of Boarman Ave., died April 1 at a rehabilitation center as a result of his injuries. Records show a suspect was arrested and charged with attempted first-degree murder, but the charges were dropped by prosecutors.

Wayne Smith, 42, who was shot several times in November 1998 as he rode a bicycle in the 2200 block of E. Fayette St., also died this year as a result of his injuries, though police could not provide his date of death. Police said Smith had been paralyzed from the waist down.

Of the 218 people killed in Baltimore as of Friday morning, at least nine were wounded in prior years.

Police also identified two recent homicide victims: David Allen Monath, 66, who was killed during a home invasion in the 4700 block of Glenarm Ave. on Wednesday; and Joshuan Q. Beasley, 26, who died Monday after being shot several times in the 1000 block of N. Carey St.
