December 02, 2009

Two more homicides were added to Baltimore's total for November, both victims of violence in previous years who died of their injuries recently. Detectives were notified about the death of Ralph Taylor, a 45-year-old man who was shot in August 1994 in the 100 block of W. Cross St. in the Sharp-Leadenhall neighborhood. Additional details were not immediately available, but The Baltimore Sun reported at the time that a man was shot at West Cross and Race streets. Police said at the time that the man was listed in "guarded condition" and had been shot in the back of the neck; the bullet emerged from his forehead. Police also added the death of Glen Footman, 52, who was shot in September 2008 as he walked with his partner in the 600 block of N. Howard St. The shooting is being treated as a possible hate crime. Police also said that a 26-year-old man shot Monday in the 1000 block of N. Carey St., initially reported as dead, was in critical condition.
