SALISBURY MAN GUILTY AND SENTENCED TO LIFE PLUS TEN YEARS FOR 1st DEGREE MURDER AND GUN CHARGES.

 

On February 18, 2016, Larry Ennis, age 20, of Salisbury, was convicted by a Wicomico County Jury of Murder 1st Degree, Conspiracy, Handgun Use in a Felony, and related offenses.  An investigation conducted by the Salisbury Police Department revealed that just after midnight on Aug 2, 2015, Ennis and two other codefendants were at a party at America’s Best Value Inn.  At the party, Ennis and his friends got into a verbal altercation with another group of young adults and were asked to leave.  Upon leaving the party, Ennis called his friend, Jarrett Stokes, and the group met at IHOP.  The group, including Ennis, Stokes and two other individuals then headed back to America’s Best Value Inn.  They parked across from the hotel and Ennis searched the crowd for the individual they had been fighting with earlier.  Stokes shot four rounds into a crowd of 75 to 100 individuals.  One of those rounds struck and killed a 17 year old boy who was standing in the crowd.  

 

On April 21, 2016, Ennis was sentenced by a Circuit Court Judge to life in prison on Murder 1st Degree, plus ten years on Handgun Use in a Felony.   

 

State’s Attorney Matt Maciarello stated: “Our community has no tolerance for gun violence.” He further stated, “Friends and family of ‘Roc’ will never get to spend another moment with him because of decisions made by a group of teens on August 2, 2015. Parents, educators, clergy, coaches and guardians, please talk to teens about violence, particularly gun violence, and about conflict resolution.  Teens should understand that if they encourage, aid and assist in the  killing of another, the State will hold them appropriately accountable.”  

 

Wicomico County State’s Attorney, Matthew A. Maciarello, commended the Salisbury City Police Department, Det. J. Miller and Det. Ryan Brittingham, for their work in the investigation and prosecution of this case.  Mr. Maciarello also thanked Senior Assistant State’s Attorney Kristen Schultz and Senior Assistant State’s Attorney Karen Dean who prosecuted the case.
