Police plan to use GPS coordinates to try and determine the location of a teen involved in the shooting of a five year old girl. Lamont Davis was wearing a GPS ankle bracelet that police cut off when he was arrested. Davis’ defense attorneys have also stated that at least three other witnesses identified another person as the shooter.
A motion was filed in the Baltimore Circuit Court stating that the makers of the GPS ankle device device have records showing that Davis was in violation of his parole at 4:09 pm. The defense attorney’s hope to prove that because the company is based in Nebraska the records reflected Central Daylight Time which would mean that Davis had violated his parole in Baltimore at 5:09 pm. Vicki Anzalone will testify that Davis “no more than 150 feet” from his residence which is half a mile away from the shooting site.
Another witness has stated that another man involved in the shootings named Maurice Powell, confessed to her that he was responsible for the shooting and did not mean to shoot the little girl. Hopefully the information given to the authorities by this GPS monitoring system will help to arrest the right person. The fact remains that an innocent five year old girl was shot and that whoever has committed this despicable crime needs to be brought to justice.
