Surveillance Video In Murder Of Dollar General Manager Released

BALTIMORE (WJZ) — Baltimore police are trying to identify the killers of a Dollar General manager who was shot Tuesday night at the Edmondson Village store.

New surveillance footage was released Thursday, as cameras rolled on two men who robbed a Dollar General.

Police say the crime started as a robbery, then escalated to murder.

Before the killers got away, cameras got their picture.

Officers say they robbed the store, before killing the store manager just minutes before 54-year-old Deric Ford Sr. locked up for the night.

Police rushed to the scene, but say Ford couldn’t be saved.

He died on the way to the hospital, while his killers got away.

In his off time, Ford was a church deacon, a husband, and a father.

Now, with a sign on the door turning business away, officers hope the store’s surveillance videos will be enough of a clue to solve the case.

“We’re hoping that citizens can watch this video and identify those individuals and provide us with information,” a police spokesperson said.

If you have information that leads to an arrest, police are offering a $27,000 reward.

This was the 212th homicide of the year in Baltimore.
