CAMBRIDGE – On April 1, after a four-day trial, a jury sitting in the Circuit Court for Dorchester County convicted Dayon Shymere Lofland, 22, of first-degree murder, second-degree murder, assault first degree, assault second degree, reckless endangerment, firearm use in the commission of a crime of violence, handgun on person, and conspiracy to commit murder in the first degree.
The charges against Lofland arose from the April 5, 2021, shooting of Da’jour Sorrell, of Cambridge. The trial was presided over by the Honorable Brett W. Wilson, senior judge of the First Judicial Circuit. Sentencing was deferred pending a mandatory pre-sentence investigation.
Ad Interim State’s Attorney Amanda R. Leonard thanked the Maryland State Police Homicide Division for their work in the investigation, as well as the Cambridge Police Department for their involvement. Ms. Leonard also thanked Deputy State’s Attorney Molly W. Fox for her diligent prosecution of the case.
