BALTIMORE, MD – School is back in session in Baltimore but that hasn’t slowed the city’s violent crime trend. On Friday police charged a 17-year-old with the murder of another student at a Baltimore high school.
According to police, on Friday, at approximately 2:54 p.m., police officers were dispatched to the 3600 block of Tivoly Avenue to investigate a reported shooting on the grounds of Mergenthaler Vocational-Technical High School.
“When Baltimore Police officers arrived at the scene, Baltimore School Police officers were observed performing CPR on 17-year-old Jeremiah Brogden, who was suffering from life-threatening gunshot wounds. The victim was transported to Johns Hopkins Hospital by ambulance and pronounced deceased by medical personnel shortly after arrival,” police said. “While at the location, School Police officers apprehended a 17-year-old male and recovered a handgun.”
That juvenile has been formally charged with 1st degree murder and is being held without bail at a Maryland Department of Public Safety and Correctional Services facility.
Due to his age, police did not release the suspect’s name.
Homicide investigators were summoned and assumed control over the investigation. Anyone who has information about this incident is urged to contact detectives at 410-396-2100.
