BALTIMORE (WJZ) – Police are asking for the public’s help to identify the man suspected of killing a city employee in front of his children last week in Northeast Baltimore.
Jake Rogers, a 34-year-old employee of the Department of Public Works, was found shot just before 8:30 a.m. on December 9 in the yard of a house on Holder Avenue. He didn’t make it.
Police on Monday released surveillance images of the suspect, who is described as a black male of average height and dressed in black who was seen running from the scene.
Police said the suspect was last seen running north on Holder Avenue.
Rogers was loading his three children into the family van to get to school when neighbors said they heard multiple gunshots. Neighbor Tracy Stover said his wife rushed to help Rogers’ children.
“Come Monday or Tuesday [shot], I realized it wasn’t a loophole or anything like that, it was a gun,” Stover told WJZ. “(My wife) ran to the truck and grabbed the kids. She is handing the children over to me. I’m trying to get them in the door while the mayhem is going on.”
Rogers has been with the Department of Public Works since 2000.
Anyone with information about the identity or whereabouts of Rogers’ killer is asked to call police at 410-396-2100. To remain anonymous, call the Metro Crime Stop at 1-866-7LOCKUP.
