Detectives were searching yesterday for an unidentified man involved in the Christmas Eve shooting of a Westminster man, who minutes before his demise had shot his estranged wife to death on a crowded street in downtown Baltimore.
Reginald Simpson, 25, was attacked by a man, dressed in black, in the 400 block of West Fairmount Avenue as he was fleeing from the 200 block of West Baltimore Street, where he had just shot his wife to death, according to city police.
Audry Simpson, 23, of Randallstown died from a gunshot wound to the head at the Maryland Shock Trauma Center.
Dennis Hill, spokesman for the Baltimore Police Department, said Mrs. Simpson was shopping with friends on Baltimore Street when she saw Mr. Simpson. Mr. Hill said that the woman, a resident of the 8000 block of Church Lane, began telling her husband what she had bought their children for Christmas but that the conversation quickly became an argument.
