WJZ searched court records and received numerous previous protective orders Wendy Black had filed against him, most recently from last year.

In one order, she wrote, “He threatened to kill me with a gun.”

She said, “He has pushed, shoved, threatened and bitten me in the past. I fear him and his anger and don’t want him to know where I live. He has access to weapons”. She also claimed in the order that he committed suicide.

In another order, she says he told her “I came for you!” She wrote, “I was so scared because I didn’t know what he was capable of… I didn’t feel that I was safe. I feel that my life is in danger.”

Protection orders were denied.

“It’s very sad to hear about what happened,” said Luu Pham, who lived just a few doors down from the first Baltimore murder.

“It was shocking, but this is the kind of thing we’ve heard about for years. These horrible things are being streamed live. It just adds another layer of horror to the way these things have happened,” Pham told WJZ Investigator Mike Hellgren. “I feel very sad for them and cannot do something to better support them and protect them from this kind of violence.”

The suspect and both victims were nurses. Wendy Black works at Howard County General according to friends. One started an online fundraiser for her surviving children.

Wendy loves and admires these two and is excited as she watches them grow and learn. She often shows off photos of their current hairstyles and shares stories about their latest adventures.”

Howard County Sheriff’s Department wrote in a press release, “Shortly after the shooting occurred, police identified two young Negro children unharmed in Rajaee Black’s vehicle, a BMW X3. grey, in the parking lot of the apartment complex where the shooting took place. The children were placed in a safe environment and did not witness the incident.”
