Port Deposit Man Found Murdered, Police Offer Reward for Information

A man was found dead from a gunshot wound in his home, Maryland State Police said.

After a Port Deposit man was found dead in his home Monday from a gunshot wound, Maryland State Police reported that troopers were investigating the death as a homicide and a reward of up to $2,000 was being offered to anyone with information leading to an arrest in the murder.

Vincent M. Robertson, 47, of the unit-block of Green Lane in Port Deposit, was pronounced dead at the scene at approximately 11 a.m. Monday, police said.

Autopsy results showed Robertson suffered multiple gunshot wounds to his upper torso, according to police, who said he was found in his living room.

Troopers from the North East barrack and crime scene technicians from the Maryland State Police Forensic Sciences Division responded after receiving a 911 call from paramedics at the residence requesting assistance, police said.

The area around Robertson's mobile home, which intersects Cokesbury Road, was cordoned off Monday during the investigation, according to the Cecil Whig, which reported police had not identified a prime suspect but officials were interviewing "several persons of interest."

Investigators continue to interview witnesses, police said Tuesday, encouraging anyone with information to call Metro Crime Stoppers at 1-866-756-2587. Callers may remain anonymous.
