Prosecutor Not Yet Assigned to Case of 15-Year-Old Squeegee Shooter

The Baltimore City State’s Attorney’s Office anticipates assigning a prosecutor to the case of 15-year-old Tavon Scott in the new year for the fatal shooting of Timothy Reynolds in July.

Scott is being tried as an adult.

A prosecutor standing in for the case informed Baltimore City Circuit Court Judge Melissa Phinn on Dec. 20 that Scott has not been offered a plea at this time and that a prosecutor will be assigned to the case pending the new administration taking office.

In the meantime, defense attorneys Warren Brown and J. Wyndal Gordon requested unredacted discovery.

At the prosecution’s request, Judge Phinn rescheduled Scott for reception court on Jan. 10, 2023.

Scott was 14 years old at the time of the incident on July 7 when he was working as a squeegee worker at the intersection of Light and Conway streets near the Inner Harbor, WMAR-2 Baltimore News reported. Reynolds, 48, was allegedly wielding a baseball bat as he approached Scott and other boys after pulling his car over and crossing several lanes of traffic.

Defense counsel argues that Scott, who fired five gunshots, killing Reynolds, acted in self-defense.
