Woman slain, man wounded in Southwest Baltimore

January 28, 1996

The shooting death of a Pasadena woman and wounding of her boyfriend in Southwest Baltimore, in what he described as a robbery attempt, remained under investigation yesterday by city police.

Teresa McLeod, 27, of Tennant Harbour in Pasadena was pronounced dead at the scene in the 1000 block of Joh Ave. from gunshot wounds to the back, said Agent Ragina Cooper, a police spokeswoman.

Her boyfriend, Robert Harris, of the same address, was released yesterday from Maryland Shock Trauma Center after treatment for a leg wound.

Agent Cooper said Ms. McLeod and Mr. Harris were in a car on a lot off Joh Avenue about 9:45 p.m. Friday when a tall, thin man in a camouflage jacket and black and white pants approached on foot, pointed a gun at the couple and demanded Mr. Harris' wallet.

"He said he had no wallet. The suspect ordered them both out of the car and shot them before fleeing on foot," Agent Cooper said. "No property was taken."

Homicide detectives interviewed Mr. Harris after he was discharged from the hospital. By last night, no suspect had been arrested.
