Baltimore police said Wednesday that detectives believe a suspect in the fatal shooting of 1-year-old Carter Scott last month has fled to New York City.

Police have identified Rashid Mayo, 22, as a suspect in the May 24 shooting that left Carter dead and his father, Rashaw Scott, 22, seriously wounded. Two other alleged gunmen have also been charged — Eddie Tarver, 20, whom they said they caught in a pursuit after the shooting, and Cornell Harvey, 26, whom Rashaw Scott allegedly identified as one of the gunmen.

"Detectives believe that Mayo fled Baltimore after being identified as a homicide suspect and could be hiding in New York City or the surrounding area," the department said in a statement.

The Baltimore Police Department Warrant Apprehension Unit is asking for anyone who may have seen or have knowledge of the whereabouts of Mayo to call 911 or the U.S. Marshals Service at 1-800-336-0102. People are discouraged from approaching Mayo, as he is considered armed and extremely dangerous, police said.

Rashaw Scott has told investigators that Harvey lured him into a parking lot in the 1200 block of Cherry Hill Road when three gunmen shot up his car.

Metro Crime Stoppers is also offering a $2,000 reward for information that leads to Mayo's arrest, Baltimore police said.
