Man shot in 2014 in Baltimore dies

A man who was shot two and a half years ago in Northeast Baltimore has died, police said Wednesday.

Nathan Matthews, then 59, was shot in the 2400 block of Pickering Drive in the Hamilton Hills neighborhood on Jan. 15, 2014.

Police identified a person of interest in the case but never charged anyone, they said. Matthews had been shot in his car.

Matthews was a married father of three who worked at Baltimore Washington Thurgood Marshall Airport, according to an online obituary.

"Nathan was known for his hard work and dedication to his family, and friends," his family wrote in the obituary. "Nathan made numerous friends wherever he went and will be sincerely missed by everyone who knew him. He was always a true friend and devoted family man."

Matthews was taken to MedStar Good Samaritan Hospital, then the University of Maryland Shock Trauma Center, where he was admitted in critical condition. He remained in critical condition at the hospital until he died on February 9 at the age of 62.

The Medical Examiner's office ruled the death a homicide on Wednesday, raising the city's homicide count for this year to 145.

Baltimore police also identified a homicide victim who was shot on Tuesday. Everette Brown, 35, was killed in the 1200 block of N. Caroline Street.

Another man was shot and injured on Wednesday, though it is unclear where he was shot. Police found the 29-year-old victim in the 1700 block of North Smallwood Street around 4:23 p.m., and he told police he had been shot at the intersection of North Avenue and Bentalou Street. Police were unable to locate a crime scene there.

Police ask anyone with information on either homicide to call 410-396-2100, text a tip to 443-902-4824, or call Metro Crime Stoppers at 1-866-7LOCKUP.
