A 14-year-old boy died and a juvenile was injured following a Friday night shooting in Milford Mill, according to Baltimore County Police.
Police identified the 14-year-old as Travis Slaughter. He was a freshman high school student at Milford Mill Academy.
The victims were taken to a hospital. Slaughter was later pronounced dead, and the other boy, whose name or age wasn’t released, had a non-life-threatening injury, police said.
Pikesville Precinct officers responded about 9:30 p.m. Friday for a reported shooting near Liberty Road and Washington Avenue. Sgt. Gladys Brown initially reported that police were summoned for an unconscious gunshot victim.
Police found the boys with gunshot wounds, Brown said.
“This unexpected and tragic news has been very upsetting for many of our students, staff and members of the community,” Milford Mill Academy Principal Tryalah Shipman wrote in a letter to parents. School counselors at Milford Mill Academy plan to work with students individually and in small groups to process the death of their classmate. Baltimore County School trauma counselors were at the school Tuesday to work with students and staff, Shipman wrote.
Homicide detectives are investigating and asking anyone with information to call 410-307-2020.
