Teenager Fatally Shot Following Junior Prom After-Party

Police in Baltimore are looking for the person who killed a teenager after he attended his junior prom.

According to NBC 11, police were called around to the 1700 block of East Lafayette Avenue around 3:37 am, where they found a shooting victim, who was taken to a hospital, where he died.

The victim Jasmine Brunson Jr., 17, had just went to his junior prom and was at an after party at an Airbnb when gunshots rang out.

“He was a light. He has lots of hopes and dreams for himself. He was a believer. He had a younger sister, and he was an awesome big brother. He was an awesome, well-rounded kid,” his family said in a statement.

The spike comes as Baltimore police also face an increase in the city’s homicide rate. So far this year, 76 people have been killed, up from 65 in the same period last year.

Another 156 people have been injured in shootings, up from 115 in the corresponding period.




Police also have recorded a large increase in robberies they identify as “miscellaneous.” There have been 268 robberies in that category, compared to only 24 at the same time last year, but police officials attributed the surge in that category to a switch in reporting systems and say they are working to correct that data.
