Fells Point Musician Murdered

BALTIMORE (WBFF)-- The owner of the Baltimore Tattoo Museum on Eastern Avenue in Fells Point said is “getting crazy, and now it is hitting home”.

Chris Keaton added he has now lost a friend. He described how Jim Forrester was working Monday as a piercer, in the studio.

Around 7:30 PM Forrester took a break and went outside to make a quick call. Apparently he was on the phone with his wife and she heard him say, "Get away from me, get away from me.“

Forrester was shot on the sidewalk.

Police said 43-year-old Forrester from Ranson, W.Va., was taken to Johns Hopkins Hospital where he died a short time later.

Homicide detectives canvassed the area on Tuesday talking to potential witnesses and looking for potential surveillance video that could help lead them to the killer.
