Prosecution Offers Plea Deal to Man Accused of Double Shooting

A Baltimore man accused of a double shooting that killed one man was offered a plea during reception court on Oct. 13 at Baltimore City Circuit Court.

Khalil Cloude, 20, allegedly shot two men on the 5500 block of Bowleys Lane on Dec. 1, 2020, according to CBS Baltimore. One man was taken to a hospital for treatment and the second man, Mikal Mayo, was pronounced dead at the scene. 

Cloude is charged with first-degree murder, firearm use in the commission of a violent crime, having a handgun on his person, and possession of a firearm as a minor.

The prosecution offered a plea of life, suspending all but 50 years, for first-degree murder, and 20 years, the first five without the possibility of parole, and five years of probation for firearm use in the commission of a violent crime to be served concurrently.

On Wednesday, Cloude’s defense attorney, Derrick Hamlin, said that he needs time to discuss this offer with his client. 

A pre-trial conference was scheduled for Nov. 2, and a trial was scheduled for April 11, 2022.
