Authorities Identify Suspect in Maryland 7-11 Shooting of Mother of 4
The Charles County Sheriff’s Office has identified a suspect in the shooting homicide of Maryland mother of four at a 7-11 store at the start of the month.
Gregory DeShawn Collins Jr, 22, has been named as a suspect in an armed robbery homicide in which 49-year old Lynn Marie Maher was shot and killed.
Collins is black, and Maher, 49, was white. The Waldorf, Maryland woman had four children who were between the ages of 17 and 25.
The CCSO is offering a considerable reward of $42,500 for information that leads to his arrest and indictment.

Accounts of the shooting described a black male entering the Waldorf 7-11 and demanding money as he announced a robbery. Maher reportedly cooperated with the terms of the robbery, but he was shot dead anyway.
The Charles County Sheriff’s Office is expected to release video footage that will document elements of the incident in the coming days. They’ve been thus unable to apprehend Collins, who appears to have an arrest history. A warrant for his arrest has been issued in connection with the crime.
Maher’s brother-in-law, Chris Maher, has identified the deceased as a loving mother of her four children and an avid practitioner of martial arts.

I wouldn’t plan on this one being mentioned by the mainstream media.
