While most of us are continuing the happiness of celebrating the holiday season, sadly there are others who are dealing with the aftermath of unspeakable tragedy. The family and friends of Destiny Harrison are heartbroken after she was killed inside her Baltimore hair salon.
@BaltimoreSun reports, 21-year-old Destiny Harrison was fatally shot on December 21st while inside her beauty salon located in the McElderry Park neighborhood of Southeast Baltimore. Authorities say they responded to a call at the scene just after 6PM. Once they arrived, Baltimore police officers reportedly found Harrison suffering from gunshot wounds to the head inside the Madam D Beauty Bar. She was then rushed to a local hospital where she was pronounced dead at the scene.
According to police, someone allegedly walked into the salon and shot Harrison several times in the head. Other people were also reportedly inside when the shooting happened. Colonel Sheree Briscoe confirmed the initial reports of the crime, but would not go into any further details. However, she is asking for community support to bring the killer to justice.
Briscoe said this to local media outlets:
“We do know there were other people present at the time, so anyone who may have seen anything — anything at all, no matter how small — to please share that information. I know that there is a conversation happening out [on] social media. That is not the investigative conversation.”
Previous court documents reveal that Harrison filed a burglary, theft and assault charge against someone who broke into her salon on December 9th and there are also reports that those close to her stated that she “feared for her life.”
Baltimore homicide detectives are urging anyone with information regarding the shooting o call 410-396-2100 or leave an anonymous tip with Metro Crime Stoppers at 1-866-7lockup. A GoFundMe page has been set up for Harrison’s funeral expenses and for her young daughter. You can contribute here.
