“It is devastating to see two young people who cared about one another and had such promising lives ahead of them, to include serving our country, have all of that cut short because of an act of senseless violence,” said ATF Baltimore Special Agent in Charge Timothy Jones. “We offer our condolences to the family and assure them that Pedro and Diamond have always remained present in the thoughts of Special Agents and Detectives as they worked together to identify the shooters. ATF will continue to focus its efforts alongside the police department to stop anyone using firearms to cause crime and violence in Baltimore communities.”READ MORE: Two Injured In Baltimore County Shooting Wednesday

“Our thoughts and prayers continue to be with the families of Mr. Chesley and Ms. Davis,” said Commissioner Michael Harrison. “I want to thank the men and women of our homicide unit that worked alongside the ATF in identifying and arresting these two suspects responsible for taking the like of two of our young people.
