Annapolis Man Gets 25 Years in Prison for Shooting on Pleasant Street

22-year-old Keenan Amal Jackson of Annapolis was sentenced to 25 years in prison Tuesday for his role in an October 2021 robbery that left a Baltimore man dead this past August on Pleasant Street.  It comes a week after another young man was found guilty of the shooting death of Michelle Cummings, a Naval Academy mother who was killed by a stray bullet that police say was also fired from Pleasant street.

Jackson is one of three defendants facing murder charges for the shooting of 22-year-old Cornell Young from Baltimore, who was killed during a daytime robbery.

Jackson was reportedly not the one holding the gun. He made an Alford Plea, which is not a guilty plea, but instead acknowledges that the prosecution has enough evidence to convict him of first-degree murder. The defendant who, by media accounts, did hold the weapon, Shammond Vonzell Taylor. The 24-year-old's trial is scheduled to start next month. Another defendant, 32-year-old Jaonte Coates made an Alford Plea in November and is scheduled to be sentenced next month.
