About 4 a.m. on August 10, 2012, Quinton Bass approached a group outside a historic bed and breakfast, and attempted to rob them. He opened fire, killing artist Alex Ulrich. Larry Peterson, who owned the bed and breakfast, died from injuries he sustained in the shooting in 2014. The incident drew an outpouring from the community, where Peterson was a vocal advocate.
Exactly three years later, Bass was found guilty in the case on a host of charges, and faces a life sentence in prison.
“This case was important to the families, as well as the Mount Vernon community. Detectives Joshua Ellsworth and Rob Burns conducted a phenomenal investigation that ultimately enabled us to seal the deal in court,” State’s Attorney Marilyn Mosby said in a statement.
