Baltimore police release names of three recent homicide victims

Baltimore police have identified three men who were killed recently in the city.

Baltimore police released on Monday the names of three men who were killed in recent shootings in the city.

Bryant Beverly, 18, died Monday following a shooting Thursday in Southwest Baltimore's Allendale neighborhood, police said. Beverly was chased into a home in the 300 block of Lyndhurst Street and shot inside at about 12:20 a.m., police said. Police initially reported that the victim was 17.

About 14 hours later, Deontae Bluefort, 21, was shot to death in the 200 block of North Hilton Street, where he lived, in the adjacent St. Joseph's neighborhood, police said.

Detectives are investigating any connections between the two killings, but have found none as of Monday, police spokesman Lt. Jarron Jackson said.

"Connectivity is something that our detectives always look for," Jackson said, adding that "at this time there is no evidence that connects the two incidents."

The third victim, Sir Moodie, 27, of the 3700 block of West Garrison Avenue, was shot to death Sunday in the 5100 block of Cordelia Avenue in the Langston Hughes neighborhood in Northwest Baltimore, police said.

Family members of the victims could not be reached Monday.

Police released no further information. Homicide detectives are investigating all three killings, and anyone with information may call 410-396-2100 or Metro Crime Stoppers at 1-866-7LOCKUP.
