In 2013, Rashaw Scott, 26, escaped a round of bullets, but his 16-month-old son did not survive. Scott found himself involved in a similar incident on Tuesday in Southwest Baltimore, only this time she did not survive.
Detectives investigating the case are trying to determine, if there is the two cases are connected.
Around 1:41 p.m., several suspects opened fire on a vehicle that was occupied by Scott and a 20-year-old man. The incident took place in the 500 block of North Freemont Avenue in Harlem Park. The 20-year-old victim was wounded, but his condition is not available at this time.
Baltimore prosecutors and police believe that Scott was lured to Cherry Hill, where a group of men wearing masks and latex gloves were waiting on him. The men opened fire on Scott’s vehicle, when it arrived in the area. His son, a passenger in the vehicle, was killed and Scott was wounded.
Five men were charged in connection with the case, but Scott refused to testify against them. In 2015, a judge issued a bench warrant for Scott’s arrest and when he appeared in court, he refused to provide details of the incident and said police had coached him on what to say.
All five of the men were convicted in the killing of Carter Scott. Rashid Mayo received two life sentences plus 45 years; Dequan Shields received life plus 20 years; Eddie Tarver received two life sentences plus 20 years; Reginald Love receive life plus 150 years; and Cornell Harvey received two consecutive life sentences plus 50 years in prison.
