3 Black Teens Shot Dead Israeli Man in Baltimore
Three black teenagers, two of whom are minors, shot an Israeli in Baltimore who had come to his brother's wedding.
Baltimore police reported the arrest of all three. They have been charged with 1st Degree Murder and are currently being held without bail.
The victim was identified as 31-year-old Ephraim Gordon. He was shot in the 3700 block of Fords Lane. Gordon was transported to Sinai Hospital where he was pronounced deceased a short time later, the police said.
Members of the Warrant Task Force arrested a 17 year-old male, a 16 year-old male and 18 year-old William Clinton 3rd, all of Baltimore, Maryland in connection with this murder.
“The arrest of the suspects in the brutal murder of Ephraim Gordon are a welcome next step in holding the perpetrators accountable and pursuing justice,” said Councilman Isaac “Yitzy” Schleifer. “We are grateful for the fantastic work done by the BPD Detectives and the cooperation of the community that made these arrests possible. We continue to grieve with Ephraim’s family and it is our prayer that as we continue work together, we can reduce crime and violence across Baltimore City.”
Gordon’s family raised $61,000 to return Gordon’s body to Israel and to offer a $30,000 reward for tips leading to an arrest. In an update on the fundraising campaign page, organizers said Gordon “has been buried respectfully.”
