HALETHORPE, Md. (WJZ) — Police in Baltimore County are investigating after a deadly double shooting in Halethorpe on New Year’s Eve.

Police were called to the 4100 block of Twin Circle Way shortly after 9:30 p.m. for a report of a shooting. When officers arrived, they found two people suffering from gunshot wounds to their upper bodies.

Medics arrived and pronounced Brea Mitchell, 23, and Antwan Jones, 25, dead at the scene.

“If there are any witnesses or any homeowners who have cameras, who have heard anything, who have seen anything… Anyone who can offer the smallest piece of information is a help,” Baltimore Police Detective Robert Reseaon.

Karen Evans had her three grandchildren inside her Halethorpe home when the shooting broke out.

“I knew it wasn’t firecrackers,” she said. “It was too close to my home.”

She said she heard multiple gunshots and came outside to see one of the victims lying in the street. Bullet holes now mark her home.

“It’s too close to home,” Evans said. “It’s just ridiculous. I’m just afraid now.”

Baltimore County Homicide Detectives are currently investigating the circumstances surrounding this incident. Anyone with information should contact the Baltimore County Police Homicide Unit by calling 410-307-2020.
