A $30,000 reward is being offered in the shooting death of a 31-year Jewish man who was killed in Baltimore while visiting for a family wedding.
Ephraim Gordon, who served in the IDF, was in Maryland for his cousin’s wedding when police said he was confronted by a group early Monday morning on Fords Lane in Park Heights.
It comes as the city is seeing a spike in crime, wbal.com reported.
The reward being offered in the case is with help from the people in the very community where the victim was gunned down, the news station added.
“I have seen a lot of footage, and it’s just devastating to watch,” said Baltimore City Councilman Yitzy Schleifer.
“He parked his car in the lot right behind us and was walking across the lot to his aunt and uncle’s house, where he had planned to stay the night, and what appears to be a robbery that went really wrong,” Schleifer said.
Gordon was shot on his family’s front steps and taken to an area hospital where he died.
In Israel, Rabbi Menachem Kutner of the Chabad Terror Victims Project (CTVP) visited the Gordon family who are sitting Shiva in the Naaleh village.
