Police are asking for help in identifying two people of interest in the murder of Efraim Gordon.
Gordon, an Israeli, was visiting Baltimore to attend a relative’s wedding when he was shot outside of the house he was staying at on May 3. He later died from his injuries.
On May 12, Baltimore Police posted the footage on their Twitter account showing two people of interest related to the case. The footage shows two men walking through what appears to be the parking lot of a gas station. Police are encouraging those with information related to the case to call detectives at 410-396-2100 or Metro Crime Stoppers at 1866-7-LockUp.

The night before, Baltimore City leaders had met with members of Gordon’s family for a crime walk to show solidarity, according to WJZ-TV.
Attendees included Gordon’s relatives, Mayor Brandon Scott, Baltimore City Police Commissioner Michael Harrison and members of the Baltimore City Council, according to WJZ-TV.
“He was an angel. It’s hard to imagine such a person exists,” Gordon’s cousin Sara Marshall told WMAR-2 News. “It would bring closure if we were able to know that whoever committed this crime would be off the streets.”
Howard Libit, the executive director of the Baltimore Jewish Council, said that, based on his conversations with law enforcement officers and elected officials, Gordon’s death was “an armed robbery that went horribly, horribly wrong,” though members of Gordon’s family have alleged antisemitic motivations for the shooting.
