White Marsh man arrested, charged with shooting Baltimore store clerk with shotgun

Surveillance video shows a suspect attemping to rob a convenience store in the 300 block of South Calhoun Street. Once at the location, officers located a 34 year-old male suffering from a gunshot wound to the upper body. Anyone with information should contact Metro Crime Stoppers at 1-866-7lockup.

Police say they have arrested and charged the shotgun-wielding man who entered a South Baltimore corner store last week and shot the clerk.

Eric Ensey, 30, of White Marsh, has been charged with attempted murder, robbery and gun charges, police said. Online court records did not list his attorney and he remains jailed without bail.

The wounded clerk remains hospitalized in critical condition.

Ensey, of Red Lion Road, was caught on surveillance video, police say, while shooting the clerk in the Jamily’s Market at South Calhoun and McHenry streets in the New Southwest-Mount Clare neighborhood. Police released the surveillance video last week.

Police said they arrested Ensey on Tuesday while responding to calls for a burglary in Morrell Park.

At the time of his arrest for the shooting Ensey was free on his own recognizance after being arrested for burglary, resisting arrest and malicious destruction of property in Baltimore County, an arrest that took place just 90 minutes after the Calhoun Street shooting. County police said Ensey was in possession of crack cocaine and tried to kick out the windows of a police vehicle.

Records from that case show county police were called to the 5800 block of Stevens Road just after midnight on March 21 after a witness said he confronted Ensey over taking items from the shed of a White Marsh home.

Police moved to put Ensey under arrest, and said he pulled his arms away and resisted. He was taken to the ground and put into a police vehicle. While inside, the officer said Ensey banged his head twice against the plexigalss inside the police vehicle, and tried to kick out a back window.

He was taken to Franklin Square Hospital for an emergency evaluation, and he later appeared before a District Court commissioner, who ordered him held on $50,000 bail. A District Court judge ordered him released on his own recognizance.
