A gunman who is still at large shot and killed a Nigerian man named Vincent Omalu on August 20 in Northeast Baltimore. Omalu had only recently became a citizen of the United States this summer.
It was discovered that the victim was killed by a single bullet that an Infiniti SUV, either gray or silver, fired into his vehicle. City police are reportedly describing the death of Vincent Omalu as “random.”
The victim’s brother, Linus Omalu, who was present when the shooting occurred, rejects this claim. According to Linus, the incident took place in Northeast Baltimore on East Northern Parkway, just west of the intersection with Fairdel Avenue.
He claimed that at the time of the incident, he and Vincent were coming from a cultural gathering with other African immigrants.
“My brother is a very innocent guy. We go to work, come back. Stay with our family. I don’t know the reason why he shot him. I just want to ask him why he would shoot my brother.”
He claimed that when a gunshot rang out, Vincent was operating the vehicle. “As soon as I heard that, I whirled around to face him. You hear that? I asked, he said. When Linus learned that his brother had been hit and the car had lost control, he declared he had to grab the steering wheel right away. The culprit left in a vehicle and hasn’t been located since.
WJZ quoted Detective Donny Moses of the Baltimore City Police Department as saying, “At this point, there’s nothing. It’s as if this vehicle just vanished and we know that’s not the case.” Linus said that his family has been afraid to leave the house as the k#ller still remains on the loose. He said he would like for his brother to get justice.
