BALTIMORE (WJZ) — Deadly home invasion. Police say a suspect shot a man, woman and teenage girl. The woman is dead and the other two victims remain hospitalized.
Rochelle Ritchie has the latest on the investigation.
It’s a very horrific home invasion. City police say they know who the shooter is and it’s just a matter of time before they find him and place him behind bars.
Police tape and blood remain at the scene of a deadly home invasion on 8th Street in Brooklyn.
“When they arrived, we found three people who had been shot. One of those victims unfortunately passed away,” said Lt. Eric Kowalcyzk.
Just before 11 p.m. Tuesday night, police say someone burst into the home and opened fire, killing 21-year-old Johnice Sheppard and injuring a 16-year-old girl and an adult man.
“It’s such a shame that someone went in there and shot two females,” said neighbor Kelly Harris.
People who live across the street say the neighborhood erupted in chaos and despair after the shots were heard.
“It was chaotic. All I know is she came running out screaming for help, running over and banging on two of my neighbors’ door,” Harris said.
Blood streaks are visible on the door. Spots of blood go all the way down the stairs.
“I have small children so it’s scary,” said Angela Hackley.
Police say the shooting was not random. Neighbors say whatever the cause, it was not worth the loss of a life.
“Kids losing their lives over…petty drama,” said Joey Schaffer.
The two other victims remain in the hospital.
Anyone with information is asked to call police.
