On Saturday, a man fatally shot both his ex-girlfriend and ex-wife before killing himself, according to Maryland police.
On Saturday, Baltimore police went to an alarm call and discovered a 41-year-old woman who had been shot and was pronounced dead before emergency personnel arrived.
In a Saturday press conference, Baltimore Police Commissioner Michael Harrison revealed that police obtained evidence that the suspect planned to conduct another murder in Howard County, Maryland. He claimed at the time that authorities were still attempting to notify the victims’ families and that they couldn’t divulge their identities to the public, and it is absolutely beautiful. Mom, you’ve done a fantastic job. This is a memory her kid will be able to relive whenever her self-assurance is shaken.
The man allegedly killed his ex-wife and posted a video on Facebook Live outside of an apartment building in Columbia, Maryland, according to the Baltimore Sun.
“Anyway, I just did something crazy, man. I just shot my ex-girlfriend in the head,” he says in the video.
“Felt like a dream. I never thought I would be that guy. I can’t go to prison, so the person that really started my depression and all of this is my ex-wife. So, she next. Then I’m going to do myself too.”
Wendy Natalie Black, 42, was identified as the woman slain in Columbia by Howard County police on Sunday. Rajaee Shareef Black was also named as a suspect. Both of them were found dead with gunshot wounds on Saturday, according to police.
Officers discovered Black’s two young children unhurt in his car “in the parking lot of the apartment complex where the shooting occurred,” according to Howard County police, who added that the youngsters “have been placed in a secure setting and did not see the incident.”
“Investigators believe Rajaee Black came to Columbia after having just committed a domestic homicide a short time earlier in Baltimore,” police added in a written description of the incident.
On Sunday, when Newsweek inquired about the event, Baltimore police forwarded Newsweek to Saturday’s press conference.
A man admitted to shooting and killing his wife and two children in a different incident earlier this month in Florida. Three counts of second-degree murder were filed against the man.
“Later on he told us that he shot each victim multiple times, just to make sure they didn’t suffer,” Nassau County Sheriff Bill Leeper said. “When he was asked why he didn’t just shoot himself, he said he was too scared to do that.”
With this, we should always be vigilant. We should always be cautious of the people around us, and avoid trusting much.
