BALTIMORE (WBFF)- The Baltimore Police Commissioner says the motive in the shooting death of a man visiting from Israel appears to be robbery.
Police confirmed Efraim Gordon, 31, was shot and killed in the 3700 block of Fords Lane at approximately 12:05 a.m. May 3.
Family tells FOX45 News Gordon was in Baltimore for a cousin's wedding and was shot on the doorsteps of his relative's home.
"We believe that was an attempted robbery that turned fatal," said Commissioner Michael Harrison, when asked about the case.
Councilman Yitzy Schleifer told FOX45 News surveillance video captures the suspects walking in the area and then approaching Gordon after he parked outside the family's home.
"A lot of my constituents are sending me video footage from their cameras from here and multiple blocks away showing some individuals who are walking through the neighborhood," said the Councilman. "What we saw closer to this location is them walking through the street, his car pulls up, he parks it and he's going to the house normally and that's when he was approached."
Police have not released any footage or a description of the suspects.
Relatives say Gordon worked in IT.
"He was a wonderful man who will be strongly missed," said a relative over the phone.
The family is now raising funds to transport Gordon's body home to Israel. https://thechesedfund.com/efraimchai/efraimlegacy

Once at the location, officers found another 31 year-old man suffering from an apparent gunshot wound.
He was rushed to an area hospital where he is listed in stable condition.
