Woman shot to death in Baltimore's Cherry Hill neighborhood

A woman was killed in Cherry Hill early Thursday night, according to Baltimore police.

The woman, 25, was shot at 5:21 p.m. in the upper body in the 2700 block of Fisk Road, in the Cherry Hill Homes in South Baltimore. She was taken to a hospital, where she died.

An hour later, wails could be heard from a house next to the crime scene. Friends and a few neighbors walked by the roped-off area in the cold.

“This is a lost society today that’s growing up,” said a neighbor, who declined to give his name for fear of his safety.

A woman ran toward the crime tape. She’d heard there was a shooting and worried something happened to her son. He’s 13 and plays in the area all the time. The neighbor told her it had been a woman who was shot — not her son.

“You can breathe now,” he told her. She clutched her chest. She was relieved. But she could hear the cries. Someone else’s worst fear had come true.
