The Baltimore City State’s Attorney’s Office announced Wednesday a man convicted of killing Rod’s Barbershop employee Kenneth Collins on March 15, 2016 has been found guilty.
Andrew Mosby was found guilty of second-degree murder, use of a firearm in the commission of crime of violence and wearing, carrying and transporting a handgun. His sentencing is scheduled for October 17.
Approximately 9 p.m. March 15, 2016 Kenneth Collins was shot, while working at Rod’s Barbershop in the 2400 block of East Monument Street. When police arrived at the scene, Collins’ body was lying inside the barbershop in a pool of blood. Collins has been shot in the head and taken to Johns Hopkins Hospital, where he was pronounced deceased at 9:34 p.m. the same day.
The investigation revealed an ongoing dispute between Collins and Mosby, aka “BGE Dude,” who unlawfully restored power to several residences, including Collins’ home. Collins paid Mosby about $300 to alter his meter to prevent BGE from determining the actual power usage. BGE investigators discovered the issue. Mosby reconnected the meter, but requested an additional payment from Collins, which caused tension between the two men.
City Watch Camera footage showed Mosby and Ignatius Lawrence at the scene of the homicide. Investigation later determined that Lawrence was the shooter. He was convicted in June of first-degree murder, use of a firearm in the commission of a crime of violence and conspiracy to commit first-degree murder. Lawrence faces two life sentences plus 35 years in prison. He is scheduled for sentencing on October 11.
