A District man who admitted to committing a 2011 carjacking on the Baltimore-Washington Parkway was sentenced to more than 11 years in prison, officials said.

Reginald Jacoby Calloway, 25, was sentenced Monday in federal court in Greenbelt, according to the U.S. Attorney's Office. He pleaded guilty in December 2011 to carjacking and a firearms charge.

Calloway admitted that on Jan. 25, 2011, he and 28-year-old Terrence Kelvin Shepherd were in a pick-up truck on the Baltimore-Washington Parkway, near the exit for Route 193 in Greenbelt, when they spotted a 2004 Nissan Murano stopped on the shoulder.

Calloway got out of the truck that Shepherd was driving, opened the passenger side door of the Nissan and pointed a gun at the driver, according to a court document. Calloway ordered the driver out of the car and took his wallet before speeding away in the Nissan.

The victim's car was recovered a short time later abandoned on the shoulder of the B-W Parkway, about a mile from where it was taken.

About 15 minutes after the carjacking, Calloway and Shepherd were seen on the surveillance camera at a gas station on Kenilworth Road in Northeast D.C., a court document stated. When a D.C. police car pulled into the location, Calloway and Shepherd left in the truck, but police pulled them over about a block away.

Officers then found a handgun at the gas station and the victim's debit card in a nearby trash can. Calloway's fingerprints were found on the stolen vehicle.

Shepherd, of the District, pleaded guilty to carjacking and was sentenced in March to more than five years in prison, according to court records.
