Neighbors tell us Jordan lives on Aiken Street with her mother, they say she was a nice person who helped out in the community.

According to investigators, the shooting may have been retaliation from a fight the night before.

"We had three members of our community injured, one was killed because of a neighborhood dispute that Mister Green decided to end with a handgun," said Baltimore City Police Lt. Jarron Jackson.

a 45-year-old man and a 40-year-old woman were also hit with bullets, they're in the hospital and are expected to be okay.  People who live nearby tell us the pair is Jordan's daughter and friend.

Green lives right around the corner from the murder scene, and officers say it was folks speaking up that took the criminal off the streets.

"What we saw happen was a community say enough is enough," Jackson said.  "We would not have been able to bring these charges against Mister Green has it not been for information provided by community members, and tips and witnesses."

Green was arrested on Saturday on an unrelated warrant for violating parole.  Investigators say he was well known to the department.

Green faces a first-degree murder charge as well as two counts of attempted first and second degree murder, two counts of first and second degree assault, two counts of reckless endangerment and gun possession charges. 

Anyone with information on this case is asked to contact detectives at 410-396-2100 or Metro Crime Stoppers at 1-866-7LOCKUP.
