A despondent man forced his way into the Federal Hill home of his pregnant ex-girlfriend and sh-ot her to death Saturday afternoon before heading to Columbia, where he then fa-tally sh-ot down his ex-wife and took his own life while his children sat in the car.
Between the murders of both women, the suspect, 44-year-old Rajaee Shareef Black, got on Facebook Live outside of his ex-wife’s Wendy Natalie Black’s, 42, apartment building. He explained that he was upset about custody issues with both women.
During his live broadcast, his ex-wife opens the door. “Oh, there’s my ex-wife right now,” he says as the video cuts off.
“This is a terrible, terrible tr-agedy,” Baltimore Police Commissioner Michael Harrison told reporters near the city cr-ime scene. “Our thoughts and prayers are with the family of these vic-tims.”
After the sh-oot-ing, officers found Black’s two young children in his gray BMW X3 in the apartment complex’s parking lot. Luckily, they were not h-urt and didn’t see the sh-ooti-ng, police said. The children are now in a safe environment, authorities said.
