Execution-style shootings leave two dead in Pimlico Police suspect slayings may be drug-related

November 10, 1992|By Richard Irwin | Richard Irwin,Staff Writer

A man and a woman were shot to death last night execution-style inside a two-story home in the 2900 block of Edgecombe Circle South in the Pimlico area.

Both victims were shot in the head at close range.

It was not immediately known if the killings were drug-related, but police suspect drugs may have been involved due to the way the couple was killed.

The victims were identified only as a 23-year-old female resident of the house and a 25-year-old northeast city resident, reportedly from the 2800 block of Harford Road.

Police were withholding the names of the victims pending notification of their families.

The man was pronounced dead at the scene.

The woman, police said, was taken by ambulance to Sinai Hospital, where she died at 10:40 p.m. in the emergency room.

The victims were found at 9:16 p.m. by Northern District police responding to a report from residents that shots were coming from inside 2900 Edgecombe Circle South near Pall Mall Road.

When the first of several officers arrived on the scene, a sister of the dead woman was outside crying. She told them her sister had been shot.

Inside a first-floor bedroom, police found the fully clothed man shot once behind the left ear.

Lying on the floor next to the bed was the fully clothed woman, still breathing and nearly unconscious.

She was shot in the forehead.

Police said there were no signs of forced entry and none of the rooms in the house showed signs of ransacking.

However, the man's car, a 1991 gold Acura Legend with partial Maryland plates YXT is missing.

Area residents who reported the shooting were taken questioned by police, but police have no suspects.
