Police Tie 3 Close-In-Time July 14 Shootings To Same Man

Monday, August 4, 2014

Police have tied three shootings that happened July 14 just an hour apart to one man.

Jamaal Tyrone Parker, 29, is charged with attempted first-degree murder, unlawfully carrying a weapon and aggravated assault.

In one of the July 14 shootings, Shanique Jordan, 31, was shot in the right hip at 3401 Campbell St. She said she suspected the shooter was Parker, the father of her youngest two children. She said she and Parker lived together for nine years, but had been apart for a year.

Police found several shell casings outside the victim's bedroom window. Ms. Jordan said she was sleeping when she heard a knock on her window at 5 a.m. She said she asked who it was, but no one responded. She said she then saw the silhouette of Parker. She then heard 4-5 shots, including one that hit her.

Ms. Jordan said when Parker was staying with her that he would often come home at 4 or 5 in the morning and knock on the window to get her to let him in.

Ms. Jordan said in April that she got into an argument with Parker at the Lakeside ball fields after he showed up with his new girlfriend. She said he pulled a gun on her at the ball fields and threatened to kill her. She said about a week prior to the shooting that Parker had asked to see the kids and she denied his request.

Police said Parker was located at 9308 Charbar Circle later on July 14, but he refused to cooperate with police. Police executed a search warrant and located a white vehicle in the garage with what appeared to be dried blood stains inside.

Inah Brown said she was at the Lakeside ball fields when Parker had the confrontation with Ms. Jordan. She said Parker pulled out a silver handgun and pointed it at her.

Police said Ms. Brown's house was shot up on July 14 and her 15-year-old son was shot and severely injured.

Lashundra Brown, sister of Inah Brown, said she also had a run-in with Parker. She said it happened at a club on Tunnel Boulevard. She said when she questioned him on why he pulled a gun on her sister, he said, "---- you and your sister. I will burn all of you b------."

Ms. Brown said a black male was shot in front of her house on July 14.

Pedestrians Have The Right Of Way

Often I visit Gold's Gym at Chestnut and 4th Street.

This happened yesterday as I was almost mowed down by a garbage ... (click for more)

Roy Exum: Abused By An EpiPen

It is a good guess that for about 30 years I have kept an EpiPen on the top of my refrigerator. I have never had to open the box, much less jab a dose of life-saving epinephrine into a person suffering from anaphylaxis. Whether it is a bee sting, peanut butter, shellfish or other allergies, I watched somebody come within inches of dying in my early 20s and swore I would have one ... (click for more)
