Man convicted of slaying another man in Salisbury

SALISBURY — A 22-year-old man has been convicted of first-degree murder in the shooting death of another man.

The Daily Times of Salisbury reports that on Thursday, a Wicomico County jury convicted Delonte Bryant in the death of 21-year-old Dommeir Deshields.

Prosecutors say on Aug. 3, 2015, Deshields was found lying in the street suffering from multiple gunshot wounds.

Authorities say Deshields was walking when someone approached and shot him.

Deshields died at a local hospital.

A sentencing date has not been set. The state’s attorney says she will drop a filing to pursue life without parole for Bryant.
