Killed – Kenneth Ray Stowers (Baltimore, MD)

Kenneth Ray Stowers1

5:23 p.m. Less than an hour later and 2 miles away, Kenneth Ray Stowers, a 50-year-old African-American man who lived on the 700 block of Bartlett Avenue, was shot on the 1100 block of East Oliver Street near the corner of Holbrook Street. He was hit more than once and pronounced dead by medics about 20 minutes later.

He spent the last nine years working at Big Momma’s Grocery in the Oliver community, and 50-year old Kenneth Stowers left his mark before he was gunned down Tuesday afternoon.

“This is not just the store. It is the kids around here. He’d do things for the neighborhood. He’d help people that didn’t really have things,” said one of the victim’s friends who did not want to be identified, “It’s just a tragedy that the brother died so unfortunately, you understand, cause every day around here in this area, you never know, sir. You never know when your day is coming.”

Police say Stowers had taken some trash cans to the side of the building when someone approached him and shot him multiple times.

“Mr. Stowers has a very lengthy past about 20 years ago. I believe he has about three different charges for attempted homicide. He did time for one. In two, he was found not guilty… in two of those other cases,” Batts said.

Double Murder – Killed – Karl Berrain (Baltimore, MD)

Karl Berrain

Two brothers who were shot in the head in Upper Fells Point this week were killed because one of them had talked to the shooter’s girlfriend, police said Thursday.

Homicide commander Capt. Stanley Brandford said Devon Ferguson, 26, of the 3800 block of Parkmount St. was charged with first-degree murder after officers who had seen video of a man fleeing the shooting scene spotted Ferguson riding a bicycle in the area.

Brothers Kurt and Karl Berrain were shot in the head at about 4:45 p.m. in front of a home in the 200 block of S. Wolfe St. Brandford said the group had gotten into an argument earlier about four blocks away.

“Mr. Ferguson was upset because one of the Berrain brothers had spoken to his girlfriend,” Brandford said. “He thought it was inappropriate for him to do so.”

Brandford said after they exchanged words, Ferguson “stalked” the brothers and shot them.
