Man Strikes Plea Deal in Connection With Annapolis Banquet Hall Shooting
According to law enforcement sources connected to the case, police and medical units were dispatched to the American Legion on Forest Drive at approximately 11:40pm on February 25, 2022 following reports of a shooting. Upon arrival, one adult male shooting victim was found with non-life threatening injuries consistent with being shot, police said. That man was subsequently transported to a nearby hospital.
Keith Taylor, 35, of Annapolis, was identified by investigators as a suspect and taken into custody the next day. He was charged with two counts of attempted murder, first degree assault and five other related crimes.
During a hearing at the Anne Arundel County Circuit Court on August 11, Taylor entered a plea of guilty to first degree assault, a felony which carries a maximum prison sentence of 25 years. The remaining charges will likely be dropped after sentencing, which is scheduled for October 28, court records show.
