UPDATE: Police name suspect in Eastport murder this morning:

Fifty four year old Clifton William Tutt, of Annapolis, was arrested and charged with the murder of Teon Wallace which occurred on September 6, 2011.

Today at 10:30 a.m. Annapolis police officers were dispatched to the 1000 block of Monroe Street for a shooting. Officers located 19 year old Teon Leander Wallace of Annapolis suffering from a gunshot wound to his upper torso. He was transported to Anne Arundel Medical Centerwhere he was pronounced dead.

With the help of the community, officers located Tutt a short distance from the scene. Tutt was interviewed and charged with First Degree Murder, Second Degree Murder, and weapons violations. He is currently being held at the Jennifer Road Detention Center on a no bail status. The circumstances that led to this shooting are unknown at this time.

Wallace was actively being sought on multiple warrants. These included an incident in July where Wallace was identified as the suspect who pointed a gun and threatened to kill a woman in the 1000 block of President St and for an armed robbery that occurred in the 400 block of Captains Circle in August.

Annapolis Police Chief Michael Pristoop said, “Any murder is regretful. But the victim in this case was no stranger to police. He lived a life checkered by confrontations with the law and violent acts. The City’s crime has significantly decreased over the past few years, and to everyone’s benefit. But for those who choose to live outside the law, the rewards aren’t always quite as high.”

Annapolis experienced four homicides in 2010. This is the first homicide in Annapolis this year.

    it’s a damn shame that a 19 year old even has a police record and even a bigger shame he is now dead. my heart goes out to his loved ones, truly sad. our community needs to come together regardless of financial status or race..we are all people just trying to get by day to day. it’s now or never in terms of saving our youth and showing love to one another.
