BALTIMORE — The man pictured in the surveillance video entered the Pizza Man convenience store with a woman at his side last Thursday night as customers, and in a matter of seconds, they left as suspects.

“He was shooting everybody like here, here and there,” said Mya Bell, a cashier at the store, who says when other customers came in, the man opened fire with no warning. “I just bent down. That’s what I did and then they left and I called the police. I’m the one that called the police.”

Baltimore Police Detective Donny Moses says even with high-grade surveillance video, what prompted the triple shooting remains a mystery for now since it doesn’t appear the shooter and his victims ever exchanged words.

“Of course, they crossed paths and then when they crossed paths again, the suspect basically followed them and without warning, pulled a gun and opened fire,” said Moses.

A cold, callous and calculated act… shooting three separate victims in their legs…for no apparent reason.

“Based on what we saw, we have every reason to believe this is random,” said Moses. “Again, there was no exchange of words. There weren’t even terrible looks. We’ve got no idea… or we have no impression that the suspect knew the victims. They didn’t even speak.”
