Musician Killed

BALTIMORE (WBFF)-- Flowers and other tributes are beginning to pile up outside the Baltimore Tattoo Museum on Eastern Avenue in Fells Point. Museum Owner Chris Keaton is emotional as he talks about his employee and friend, Jim Forrester.

Forrester took a break from work and stepped outside the shop Monday evening and that is when he was fatally shot on the sidewalk. Keaton said Forrester had been facing a life threatening illness this year. He said the health problem escalated at one point, and Forrester was put on Life Support. “It breaks your heart. He’s been fighting hard, he had blood clots in his liver, he was in a coma. He almost died.”

Keaton says his friend was finally recovering and getting his life back in order when suddenly he was killed. Keaton explained, "He felt he had a new lease on life and he was going to do everything in his power to make it work out".

Baltimore Homicide detectives canvassed the block Tuesday and again on Wednesday looking for clues. So far, no arrests have been made in connection with this homicide case.
