BALTIMORE (WJZ) — Police have identified the 16-year-old who was fatally shot earlier this week. The teen’s murder marked the 100th in Baltimore this year.
Jordan Deshields was shot just after 8:15 p.m. Tuesday, near a basketball court at the Mary Rodman Recreation Center in the southwest part of the city.
During their investigation, police say a handgun and drugs were found on the victim. Police Commissioner Darryl De Sousa said the teen had a .380 in his pocket.
Deshields was the second Baltimore teenager to be murdered in less than a week.
Ray Glasgow III was a distinguished student-athlete at Baltimore City College High School.
Glasgow and friends were sitting in a parked car along Eden St. on May 5, when a gunman pulled up and opened fire, killing Glasgow and injuring his friend.
Police say 17-year-old Glasgow, who was killed on Saturday, was not the intended target, and they are still looking for his killers, along with a white, 2-door Nissan Altima connected to the case.
