A Baltimore man shot and killed his girlfriend and ex-wife in two jurisdictions before taking his own life on Saturday, Dec. 11.
Baltimore Police Commissioner Michael Harrison said officers responded to an alarm call shortly after 1:30 p.m. in Federal Hill, and found a rear door kicked in. Inside the residence, they found a 41-year-old woman dead from a gunshot wound.
Police received information about a Facebook Live video in which a man said he shot his girlfriend and was on his way to Howard County, Maryland to kill his ex-wife and take his own life.
“Howard County Police were notified by Baltimore Police that there was a post on social media that indicated the suspect’s intention to come to Howard County,” said Sherry Llewellyn, a spokeswoman for Howard County Police.
By the time officers arrived at an apartment in the 7300 block of Eden Brook Drive in Columbia just after 2 p.m., the suspect had killed his ex-wife and himself, Llewellyn said.
In a Facebook Live video, the man calmly explained what drove him to shoot his ex-girlfriend earlier.
“Anyway, I just did something crazy, man. I just shot my ex-girlfriend in the head yo,” he said. “It felt like a dream. I never thought I would be that guy. I can’t go to prison, so the person that really started my depression and all of this is my ex-wife. So, she next. And then I’m going to do myself too.”
His confession was a cautionary tale about the risks involved when women play with a man’s emotions.
“I just wanted to say this to people,” he continued, “don’t play with people’s emotions. Don’t lie on these men. Oh, here’s my ex-wife right here.”
Just then, his ex-wife opened the back door and poked her head out before slamming the door shut.
“Oh nah nah, today is the day,” he said as the video ends.
