Son linked to father's shooting death, officials say

The man who was found dead in his Anne Arundel County home Sunday was fatally shot, police officials said Tuesday, adding that evidence links the victim's son to his death.

The medical examiner's office ruled 50-year-old Darius Keenan Sr. died from a gunshot wound to his upper torso. He was found dead Sunday morning at his residence in Pasadena.

Keenan's vehicle was missing from his home Sunday, and the victim's son, 26-year-old Darius Keenan Jr., was found with the vehicle later that day in North Carolina, according to the Anne Arundel County Police Department.

Keenan Jr. is being held in Charlotte on numerous traffic violations and on a detainer on an auto theft charge from Anne Arundel. Detectives have recovered evidence that connects Keenan Jr. to his father's death, officials said.
