A Silver Spring man was sentenced to life in prison for a murder that happened in September 2017.

On Wednesday, a Montgomery County Circuit Court judge gave 53-year-old Lloyd Walters, life plus 20 years, the maximum sentence, for killing Todd Pruitt, 63.

Authorities say Walters entered a police station, suffering from a gunshot wound to the abdomen. He admitted to shooting a man in a trailer. Later, officers found Pruitt with multiple gunshot wounds.

Prosecutors say Walters tried to rob Pruitt of a large amount of cash that was inherited through his mother’s death. Walters was found guilty of first-degree murder, and use of a handgun in the commission of a violent crime.

“Mr. Walters had a mutual friend, and through that friend was able to find out that substantial sums of cash was kept in the safe in that trailer. So he went armed with a handgun to try to rob Mr. Pruitt,” said Ramon Korionoff, Montgomery County State’s Attorney office.

Walters was convicted by a jury in February.
