bailey-reevesA transgender woman in Baltimore was found shot and killed over the weekend.

The victim, who was identified as 17-year-old Bailey Reeves on social media, suffered multiple gunshots to the chest and was killed as she left a party on Sunday night.

A neighbor heard the gunshots and called 911.

“We were in the kitchen, it was around 8,” the 16-year-old neighbor told WMAR. “We were getting ready for dinner and we heard three shots.”

“We heard a girl screaming ‘My friend! Someone help my friend! Call 911!’”

The neighbor ran outside with her mother and uncle.

“We saw her laying in the middle of the street in a pool of blood, it even traumatized me,” she said. “She was like a year older than me. I couldn’t even imagine if it was me and my friends.”

Officers arrived and took her to the hospital, where she died.

An Instagram account that follows crime in Baltimore identified the victim as Bailey Reeves.

She is the 17th transgender person known to have been murdered in 2019, and the fifth person shot that night in Baltimore.
