BALTIMORE (AP) — The general manager of a restaurant in Baltimore’s Little Italy was killed in Fells Point early Monday and a woman delivering food was fatally shot hours later in northeast Baltimore during of a robbery, police said.
Chesley Patterson, 44, was shot around midnight in the 1700 block of Eastern Avenue and pronounced dead at a hospital, police said. Patterson was the general manager of La Scala restaurant in Little Italy, less than half a mile from where he was killed, the Baltimore Sun reported.
Officers responded to another shooting on the 3900 block of White Avenue about two hours later and Cheryl McCormack, 51, of Nottingham was pronounced dead at the scene by medics, police said. McCormack was killed in a “robbery gone wrong”, police said.
McCormack’s husband, Jim, said his wife and another man were working for the DoorDash delivery service when they had car trouble and pulled over. McCormack said the man who worked with his wife told him that two men tried to rob them, and when Cheryl McCormack said no, one of the men shot her.
