Lambert was several weeks pregnant at the time of the June 2017 homicide. She suffered from multiple gunshot wounds along with other injuries.
Police had located Mason on the steps of Lambert’s apartment complex. He was unresponsive and covered in blood. Hours later, police were again called to the complex when a neighbor reported finding bloody footprints outside a unit where the door was ajar. They discovered Lambert’s body and two handguns inside that apartment.
State’s Attorney Marilyn Mosby thanked Lambert’s neighbors for calling 911.
