Edward Lamptey walked out of a fast-foot restaurant in Park Heights in May of 2010 and got carjacked. But it's what happened next that sets this case apart. Prosecutors say he was forced to drive to ATMs, dragged into an alley, beaten, shot, stripped and left unconscious. Then, authorities said his assailants set his car on fire. The Baltimore State's Attorney's Office said on Wednesday that the main suspect, Terrell Scott, 21, of the 3500 block of West Garrison St., was convicted by a jury of armed car jacking, robbery with a deadly weapon, kidnapping and several other crimes.
