BALTIMORE (NBC/WBAL) - Police in Baltimore, Maryland say a young community activist gunned down Monday evening was trying to protect his children as he died.
Police Commissioner Kevin Davis was joined by other city leaders Tuesday morning to canvass the neighborhood where 24-year-old Kendal Fenwick was shot.
Davis said Fenwick was doing all the right things in life and called the crime disgusting.
"It takes a special, cowardly, insecure little punk to do what happened here last evening, to flat out execute a 24-year-old young man who is raising, by himself, three children in this home, who's doing everything he can to eradicate this community of drugs, to include putting up fence by his own hand in his yard," Davis said.
Police said that as the killer fired shots, Fenwick ran away from his home, they believe to keep his children safe inside.
