A person of interest has been taken into custody in the murder of 54-year-old Deric Ford, Sr., who was shot and killed after a robbery at a Dollar General store in west Baltimore.


A reward of $27,000 had been offered for information after two unknown suspects robbed the store Tuesday night, located in the Edmondson Village Shopping Center, and shot Ford, who had been working as the store's manager.

Officers arrived to find Ford suffering from a single gunshot wound to the head.

Police released surveillance video of the two suspects. 

Anyone with information on either of the suspects shown in the surveillance video should contact detectives at (410) 396-2100 or 410-265-8080 for the FBI Violent Crimes Task Force, currently assisting Baltimore Police.
