A Baltimore City prosecutor dismissed attempted murder charges against a 35-year-old man accused of a triple shooting last November after failed attempts to contact a witness necessary for trial.
Troy Lockley was facing 20 counts in connection to the shooting on Oct. 25, 2022, including three counts each of attempted first and second-degree murder, first and second-degree assault and reckless endangerment as well as single counts of firearm use in a felony or violent crime, firearm possession with a felony conviction, illegal possession of a firearm, having a loaded handgun on his person and firing a gun within Baltimore City.
On Sept. 18, Lockley and his attorney, Josh Insley, appeared before Baltimore City Circuit Court Judge Stephen J. Sfekas for an anticipated jury trial. However, the prosecutor said he was unable to contact one of his witnesses and could not proceed with the case.
Judge Sfekas entered the dismissal into the record.
Lockley was initially accused of walking into the courtyard of an apartment complex on the 900 block of W. Saratoga Street and talking with the male and female victims before pulling out a gun and shooting at them. Court documents state a muzzle flash was captured on video surveillance recovered by the Baltimore Police Department (BPD).
As Lockley ran away, the male victim retaliated with multiple gunshots, while the female victim and another woman chased after Lockley. The defendant was later identified by two of the witnesses in a photo array with police.Notifications are not yet available for this specific case. Please check back later for updates. Thank you.
