UPDATE: From an unconfirmed witness:
GM. I was getting gas on forest drive.
The guys next to us were dead. We were there when the police arrived. They were black or Hispanic. The drivers head was on the steering wheel. The other guys head was all the way back. The attendant thought they were sleeping
This morning, shortly after 9:30am, a large Annapolis City police presence at the 24-7 Mart located on Forest Drive at the intersection with Tyler Avenue near the Robinwood neighborhood was observed by Eye On Annapolis. Other reports indicate police had been there since early morning.
The entire property was cordoned off and police had surrounded a black 2-door car that appeared to be parked at the pumps closest to Typer Avenue.
We reached out to police, but have yet to receive a call back; however, one of our twitter followers reports that they witnessed a body being removed from the vehicle.
We will update this story as information becomes available.
