Randallstown double homicide under investigation; children were home at time of murders
RANDALLSTOWN, Md. (WBFF) -- The homes along Bald Eagle Court in Randallstown are well-kept. Most of the homes are occupied with families. But on Monday morning, residents were just getting ready for work and school when police converged in the street.
A 911 call led them to an address where police say they found a man and woman dead on the top floor of a house. Police are calling it a double homicide.
Baltimore County Police spokeswoman Jennifer Peach explained, “Police and fire responded and made entry into the home and discovered two people, an adult male and adult female, both discovered in upper portion of the home.”
The two victims of Monday morning's Randallstown homicide lived in the home and are identified as Chinika Shari Hursey and Steven Scott Campbell, both 36. Police advised Hursey and her boyfriend, Campbell, were killed during the overnight hours by an unknown suspect inside their home.
Hursey's children were home during the night but were unharmed. Neighbors say the four children ranged from a teenager to a toddler.
One neighbor said she heard nine shots around 4 a.m. She did not call police and now has regrets.
"I wish I had," she said. She did not want to be identified because she was afraid of the attacker.
Investigators believe that the couple was targeted. The cause and manner of each victim’s death will be determined by the Office of the Chief Medical Examiner.
