BALTIMORE — A missing Baltimore man has been found dead.

On Sunday evening, police found 23-year-old Christian Jackson with a gunshot wound to the head in the 2200 block of Talbot Road.

Officers were initially called to the area to assist with towing a vehicle.

Jackson had been reported missing on February 15, from the 1200 block of McElderry Street.

At the time, police put out a description of Jackson’s 2005 Chrysler Town and Country van, but it's unclear if that's the vehicle that was being towed.

Neighbors said it’s daunting to know that it was sitting so close and they believe its this type of violence that perpetuates the fear of stepping outside.

“I mean my goodness there’s murder is practically every day, carjackings practically every day, the average citizen in Baltimore does not feel safe," said one neighbor. "That’s really what Baltimore is everybody’s on edge you don’t want to walk certain places, you don’t want to go certain places and now it’s right here in the neighborhood. The mere fact that I have to do this interview without showing my face because of fear of retribution is a perfect example."

No information on a potential motive or suspect has been released.

Anyone with information can call detectives at 410-396-2100 or Metro Crime Stoppers at 1-866-7LOCKUP.
