CAM­BRIDGE — A Cam­bridge woman has been con­victed of the Jan. 30 mur­der of Sharod I. Mack.

Mack was fa­tally shot in his home at 803 Wood Duck Drive.

La­sonya Corinne Sar­gent, 40, also of 803 Wood Duck Drive, was found guilty of first- and sec­ond-de­gree mur­der, first-de­gree as­sault and use of a firearm in a vi­o­lent crime, ac­cord­ing to a press re­lease from Dorch­ester County State’s At­tor­ney Wil­iam H. Jones.

A jury reached the ver­dicts Fri­day, Aug. 14, af­ter a five­day trial in Dorch­ester County Cir­cuit Court.

Cam­bridge po­lice of­fi­cers were called about 2:40 p.m. Tues­day, Jan. 30, for a re­ported shoot­ing at the home.

They found Sar­gent with a gun­shot wound to her chest, and Mack, 34, with two gun­shot wounds to the head, po­lice said. Mack was pro­nounced dead at the scene, and Sar­gent was taken to Univer­sity of Mary­land Shore Med­i­cal Cen­ter at Dorch­ester in Cam­bridge for emer­gency treat­ment and then the Univer­sity of Mary­land Shock Trauma Cen­ter in Bal­ti­more.

Sar­gent was ar­rested Tues­day, Feb. 6, when she was re­leased from the hos­pi­tal.

Jones, in the press re­lease, thanked the Cam­bridge Po­lice Depart­ment and Deputy State’s At­tor­ney Molly W. Fox for their work in the in­ves­ti­ga­tion and pros­e­cu­tion.
