BALTIMORE (WBFF) – A Baltimore man who had already been arrested in the assault of an infant boy and his mother last Thursday morning now faces murder and other charges following the boy’s death.

Baltimore police officers responded at approximately 6:25 a.m. on Sept. 1 to University of Maryland Pediatrics for a report of an unresponsive and unconscious three-year-old boy. At the hospital, the boy’s mother told officers that she and her son had been assaulted by multiple unknown suspects when they were walking on Janice Avenue in South Baltimore.

Homicide detectives assumed control of the investigation due to the seriousness of the boy’s injuries. In an interview with the mother, detectives learned that her boyfriend, 22-year-old Charles Shelton of Gorman Avenue, had allegedly assaulted them.

Police subsequently arrested Shelton and charged him with attempted first-degree murder.

However, on Sunday, the boy succumbed to his injuries at the hospital. His case has been upgraded to a homicide as a result, police said.

Police and the State’s Attorney’s Office of Baltimore City are now working to amend Shelton’s charges with an additional murder offense.

Shelton has been detained in Central Booking without bail. He also faces charges of first- and second-degree assault, first-degree child abuse and reckless endangerment. #208

  • elle.dThat is what is wrong with our community. When someone murders someone the next man ready to murder him ( don't twist it I will be on one too) or its free him after he murdered someone's child, mother, father, etc. Open your eyes Israel this is what the REAL ENEMIES want to see! Undercover and off duty have plenty blood on their hands even uniformed 12 jumping in. This makes me sick with all the judgment knowing only one person is entitled to that. It is ok to disagree within our community without killing. Have respect for the victim and suspect families when posting. Imagine their pain and stress instead of adding to it with revengeful comments. Let the Most High handle things it is HIS world. Please beware of Satan running it and open your eyes to his deception. Please Israel....we are one #Onelove
  • elle.dRip to the baby, praying for guidance, strength and healing for both families. Let us come out of Babylon/European way of thinking. We are not slaves, but we are stil in captivity and our youth is being mind control. They want us to see them slaughter us on camera to cause outrage within our community to make you think it is okay to murder
  • elle.dThe media throws fake stories out alllll day!! Israel/Judah brothers, sisters, kings, queens focus on getting back to our kingdom. Practice obedience and discipline when it comes to Father Yah. It's a freely feeling
