Police looking for leads in Cambridge murder

CAMBRIDGE, Md. – Just after midnight on Sunday, police in Cambridge responded to calls for shots fired and found 21-year-old Khalil Reid lying in a parking lot near Club DuJour with obvious gunshot wounds. Reid was later pronounced dead at a nearby hospital, but that’s about all police know. What led up to those fatal gunshots remains a mystery.

“Our investigators are still interviewing witnesses and any residents in the area, particularly those who may have seen or heard anything in the neighborhood that morning,” Elena Russo with Maryland State Police said.

Maryland State Police, who were brought in to investigate the murder, say they’re working off of little information to find Reid’s killer.

“There are no specific descriptions of a suspect at this point,” Russo said.

On Monday 47 ABC saw several signs in the area saying surveillance cameras were running, but police did not say whether anything was caught on video. Now, they’re hoping that the evidence they did collect from the scene will help them find the person who pulled the trigger.

“We’ve got the crime scene evidence that has been transported to the state crime lab being analyzed,” Russo said.

And in a case with so little information, police say no tip or bit of information is too small.

“They are really hoping that somebody comes forth with some definitive descriptions of what the suspect may have been wearing, driving, or look like,” Russo said.

 A press conference is planned for Tuesday at 1 in the afternoon, where the Cambridge Police Department and Mayor’s Office will discuss the recent uptick in violent crime in the area.
