A $30,000 reward is being offered for any tips that lead to the arrest of the person who may have shot and killed a 31-year-old Israeli man Monday.
Efraim Gordon, was fatally shot in the 3700 block of Fords Lane in an apparent robbery, Commissioner Michael Harrison said Monday. Police have not said whether a suspect has been identified.
The 31-year-old was visiting Baltimore from Israel for a week to attend his cousin’s wedding. When he was shot in Northwest Baltimore’s Glen neighborhood, he was walking back to his aunt and uncle’s house, Councilman Isaac “Yitzy” Schliefer said.
In an online fundraiser from Gordon’s family, the page says a portion of the money went toward the hefty reward, in addition to helping get his body back to Israel to be buried. More than $56,000 has been raised through Wednesday night.
“We are so grateful for your tremendous support,” the latest fundraising update said. “As the investigation proceeds, we will be using a portion of the funds for a reward to find the suspect/s. Your contribution will directly help our community streets be safe, as we are not going to leave any stone unturned. We will be tapping into additional methods of investigation that these funds will directly assist.”
