Baltimore Police said ShotSpotter detected 10 rounds just before 2 p.m. in the Sandtown-Winchester neighborhood. When officers arrived, they found Jordan Richards, 26, with at least one gunshot wound and transported him to an area hospital where he died from his injuries, police said.

Police said Richards lived in 1300 block of North Stockton St., near where he was shot.

Forensic investigators took photos and collected evidence in paper bags around at least 15 evidence markers.

The scene at North Carey and Laurens streets was around the corner from two metro stations: Upton and Avenue Market. The shooting closed down one block but police roped off the area so people could keep going in and out of the corner store, Laurens Mini Market.

A store employee said he arrived after the shooting and didn’t know anything. He declined to comment further.

Several people approached police to ask whether the victim survived and then walked into the store to keep warm. Many of them stood in the doorway, dragging on cigarettes while watching police investigate.

Homicide detectives are investigating this incident. Anyone with information is asked to call 410-396-2100 or Metro Crime Stoppers at 1-866-7Lockup. You can also text tips to 443-902-4824.
