A Baltimore man has been indicted on charges he killed a man in Pigtown last month, the Baltimore City State’s Attorney’s Office said.

Court documents and video surveillance footage show that a black Mercedes with Delaware tags was parked at the shooting scene in the 1100 block of Washington Boulevard. A man, identified as Cooper, got out of the vehicle carrying a semi-automatic handgun. He approached Randall and shot him several times before fleeing to the vehicle and leaving the scene, according to a press release from the office.

Witnesses identified Cooper to police.

“I appreciate the efforts of both the Baltimore Police Department and the community in this case. My office will continue to aggressively prosecute those who seek to degrade our streets with violence,” Baltimore City State’s Attorney Marilyn Mosby said.
