BALTIMORE (WJZ) — Efraim Gordon, 31, was in Baltimore last week for a cousin’s wedding. He was shot and killed in north Baltimore while standing on his aunt and uncle’s doorstep in the 3700 block of Fords Lane.
Now, police need help finding out who’s responsible and released new surveillance video of two men they said are persons of interest. The men were walking through a gas station parking lot just before 1 a.m. May 3.READ MORE: Efraim Gordon's Family Still Searching For Answers About His Murder As More Violence Reported Tuesday In Baltimore
“It would bring closure if we knew whoever committed this crime is off the street,” said Sarah Marshall, Gordon’s cousin. “We don’t know what the motive or what happened that night but what we do know is we want justice.”
Marshall said her 31-year-old cousin took his first flight to America for a family wedding and one week later she said he is now leaving in a coffin.
“He was the kindest soul that I ever met in my life. We don’t have any answers, we don’t know what the motive was or what really happened that night but what we do know is we want justice,” she said.
Ella Gordon, Efraim Gordon’s sister, spoke to Israel National News, expressing her confusion and disbelief that something so horrific and sudden took her brother’s life.
“Nothing was stolen he had his watch, his passport, his ID, the bag, money,” she said.
Community members are outraged by the violence, saying things seem to be getting worse and worse, and killings are becoming more and more frequent.
“Nobody should do something like this. Nobody should die like this. This is America,” said a man holding up a reward poster in the city.READ MORE: Community Devastated After Efraim Gordon Murdered While Visiting Baltimore, Volunteers Hand Out Flyers
Investigators have not given a motive in the case.
“The police department has been very thorough in having detectives combing through every piece of evidence and that’s what’s key to solving crimes,” said Councilmember Yitzy Schleifer.
There is a $30,000 reward for information that leads to an arrest and conviction in the case.
