'VERY DISTURBING' | Federal Hill area rocked by fatal shooting
BALTIMORE (WBFF)-- Baltimore City Police tell FOX45 that robbery is possibly a motive in the shooting death of a man, shot near his home in Federal Hill.
Police identify the man who died as 25-year-old Timothy Moriconi.
Moriconi "had just left a relative's home in the same general vicinity and was walking back to his residence when this encounter took place," said Baltimore Police Department spokesperson T.J. Smith in a press conference Friday afternoon.
"He was not jogging or working out, it does appear," said Smith about the victim.
Police do not "have all the details of the encounter" at this time and don't know exactly what occurred. "This is something that we are actively investigating and we are hoping we can get some more information to piece this together."
Baltimore police are urging anyone in the community the "continue to be helpful" and anyone with personal surveillance to come forward.
"There's no other way to describe this, other than a deplorable act of violence," said Smith.
Police did not reveal any more information on a suspect.
Neighbors say he was shot & killed right in front of his house in the 1200 block of Riverside before 7:30 Thursday night.
Baltimore police say he lived in the same block.
He was taken to an area hospital where he died.
Moriconi worked at major defense contractor Northrop Grumman Corporation, according to his Facebook page.
Last August, he posted on a local neighborhood page that he was robbed by two suspects on the same street.
A vigil for Moriconi was held Friday evening.
A reward of up to $2,000 is being offered for information in the killing.
