UPDATE (September 17):

Baltimore County Police have charged two suspects in connection with the September 15 shooting in Catonsville that left one man deceased and one man injured.

  • Jordan Nathaniel Jackson (20) of the 2300 block of Cedley Street 21230
  • Christopher Andre Williams (30) of the 2800 block of Carver Road 21225

Both men have been charged with first degree murder and attempted first degree murder. They are being held without bail at the Baltimore County Detention Center.

Just before 6 p.m. Monday night, a Police supervisor was in the area of Johnnycake Road and Upper Mills Circle when he heard gunshots. He investigated the sounds and found a male victim running down the street suffering from at least one gunshot wound. He was taken to an area hospital for treatment.

Another victim was found deceased in a car on Upper Mills Circle. He has been identified as 23-year-old James Wesley Cornish of the 6000 block of Cecil Avenue 21207.

Officers were able to determine that the suspects had fled the area in a red van. That van was located on westbound Baltimore National Pike towards the Howard County line. The van fled from police and crashed into numerous vehicles, including police cars while attempting to escape.

Officers were able to get the van stopped on Baltimore National Pike at the Howard County line. Jordan Nathaniel Jackson and Christopher Andre Williams were in the vehicle and were taken into custody.

Police also recovered two firearms from the van.

The initial investigation into this incident has indicated that one victim was sitting in a car and one victim was outside of the car when the suspects approached in a red van. The suspects exited the van and began shooting at the victim in the car. The victim that was outside of the car was shot in the lower body as he ran from the scene.

Homicide investigators credit the timely response and actions of Woodlawn Precinct patrol officers for the quick capture of the suspects in this case.

This incident remains under investigation by the Baltimore County Police Homicide Unit. Investigators are working to determine a motive for this crime and if the victims were targeted.

Original release (September 15):

The Baltimore County Police Department is investigating a double shooting that left one man deceased in the 7000 block of Upper Mills Circle, 21228.

On September 15, at 5:54 p.m., a Baltimore County Police supervisor was in the area of Johnnycake Road and Upper Mills Circle 21228, when he heard the sounds of gunshots. The police officer investigated the sounds and found a male victim running down the street suffering from at least one gunshot wound. Police were able to determine that the suspects had fled the area in a red van and broadcasted the information to other police units in the area. Police officers located the red van fleeing westbound on Route 40 West (The Baltimore National Pike) towards the Howard County line. The suspects driving the red van crashed into numerous vehicles, including police cars while fleeing from the crime scene. Officers were able to get the van stopped and took the two male suspects into custody on Route 40 at the Baltimore County/Howard County line at the bridge.

There were two male victims, one was found deceased inside a car in the 7000-block of Upper Mills Circle. The second victim, who was found running from the scene by police was transported to a local hospital for treatment. His condition at this time is unknown. There were no injuries to the police involved in the pursuit and apprehension.

The two male suspects were taken to a police facility, where they will face murder charges along with a list of other charges. Baltimore County Homicide investigators are handling the case.

No additional information is available at this time.

A 32-year-old Baltimore man has been charged in the June 20 stabbing death of his pregnant girlfriend in her Rosedale home.

Kenneth Walter Worrell III of the 5800 block of Lillyan Avenue, 21206, has been charged with first-degree murder and is held without bail at the Baltimore County Detention Center.

The victim, Summer Shemida Smith, 33, of the unit block of Travis Court, 21237, was nine months pregnant when she was killed. The Baltimore County State's Attorney will review this case to see if additional homicide charges are warranted for the death of the unborn child.

The victim was found by her mother, bloody and unconscious, in the basement of the Travis Court home at about 7:30 p.m. on June 20; Smith was pronounced dead at the scene by BCoFD EMS personnel. An autopsy by the Office of the Chief Medical Examiner found that Smith suffered multiple injuries, including puncture wounds.

Detectives were able to link Worrell to the crime when DNA tests showed that blood stains on a bank receipt found in Worrell's car and dated the day of the murder belonged to Smith.
