PARKVILLE, Md. (WJZ)— A Baltimore County woman was shot and killed in front of her 3-year-old son Tuesday morning in the 1300-block of Dalton Road in Parkville. Now police want to talk to her estranged husband.
Rochelle Ritchie has the latest on this story.
Victoria Glover, 28, is a woman who was on the right path to starting over.
“She was a really nice young lady,” said Cynthia, neighbor.
But Tuesday morning as she put her 3-year-old son in the back seat of her car, Baltimore County Police say she was approached by a man with a gun looking to kill.
“We believe a domestic issue was at play in this circumstance,” said Baltimore County Police Chief Jim Johnson.
Digging into Maryland court records, WJZ found Glover had filed for divorce from her 38-year-old husband, Cory Bowman, in April.
Bowman has not been named as a suspect, but police say they want to talk.
“A FTA bench warrant has been issued to him for failure to appear in an unrelated case. He failed to appear in an area court in Baltimore County yesterday,” Johnson said.
Bowman’s lengthy criminal record paints a disturbing picture of violence, including battery. Most recently he faced charges of second-degree assault, possession of a concealed weapon and possession of a weapon with the intent to injure.
Court records show Glover had retained a lawyer from the House of Ruth, a nonprofit organization for battered women.
Neighbors say they are still shocked at the violence a few doors down and the life it cost.
“She was a nice woman, and I don’t see why she could get killed for something like that,” said James, neighbor.
Glover’s son was not physically harmed during the shooting.
Anyone with information on this incident is asked to call Baltimore County Police at 410-307-2020.
