On April 24, 2016 Troopers from the Maryland State Police were dispatched to Graces Lane in Grasonville, Maryland for a report of “shots fired”.  Troopers subsequently met with the victim, Grandmother of Amon Jazz Malik Stowers, who told Troopers that Stowers had fired a .25 caliber handgun into the rear fender of her Chevrolet passenger vehicle because she refused to make Stowers something to eat.  The victim stated that she had been running errands and when she returned to her residence Mr. Stowers was in the driveway.  Stowers said he was hungry and requested that the victim make him food.  When the victim refused Stowers became angry, pulled out a handgun and fired one round into her vehicle.  Stowers threatened to discharge more shots if he did not get something to eat.  The Grandmother immediately called 911.

Troopers located a shell casing at the scene, but did not recover the handgun.  Troopers located Stowers, who admitted to shooting the car because his Grandmother wouldn’t feed him.  Stowers reportedly threw the handgun into the Chester River at the Kent Narrows.

Stowers entered a guilty plea to the handgun violation on January 19, 2017 in the District Court for Queen Anne’s County.  He faces three years in prison at his sentencing hearing on March 22, 2017.  Stowers is being held at the Queen Anne’s County Detention Center while he awaits the sentencing hearing.  Mr. Richardson, State’s Attorney, handled this case and added “the Detention Center is now providing Mr. Stowers all his nutritional needs”.
