Black- and copper-colored beads lay around a puddle of blood in a Northwest Baltimore alley where police said a transgender woman was killed early Wednesday in a crime that bore similarities to the slaying of another transgender woman last month. Baltimore police are investigating whether the death of Mia Henderson, 26, is connected to the killing of Kandy, whose body was found June 3 in a field in Northeast Baltimore. Both were found during the early morning, and police have no suspects in either case.

In the first incident, a 31-year-old man was shot in the face around 10 p.m. inside of a home in the first block of N. Hilton St. in Southwest Baltimore. The victim flagged down an officer on patrol in the area and was taken to a hospital for treatment. Police said the suspect was unknown and did not provide information on a possible motive. About an hour later, police found a 28-year-old man with a gunshot wound to his leg in the 5300 block of Denmore Ave. in the Arlington neighborhood of Northwest Baltimore.

Friends say Mia Henderson had only recently moved back to Baltimore when she became the victim of a homicide this week in Northwest Baltimore. Henderson was found in a Hanlon-Longwood neighborhood alley early Wednesday, killed by "severe trauma," police said. Henderson's brother, Reggie Bullock, is a shooting guard for the Los Angeles Clippers, and her death became national and international news Thursday in part because of that connection. Police say the killing of Henderson, 26, a transgender woman, bears similarities to the killing of another transgender woman named Kandy Hall, 40, about a month ago in Northeast Baltimore.
