A 17-year-old boy pleads guilty to first-degree murder in the fatal shooting of an Israeli man who was visiting Baltimore for a wedding last year.

Rasheed Morris, 17, is the second of three people charged in the May 2021 shooting death of Efraim Gordon, 31, to enter a guilty plea, The Baltimore Sun reports.

Omarion Anderson, 18, pleaded guilty last month to first-degree murder. William Clinton III, 19, was also charged with first-degree murder, armed robbery and attempted carjacking offenses.

State’s Attorney Marilyn Mosby said in a statement that Morris will likely be sentenced to life in prison with all but 50 years suspended.

Gordon was shot multiple times during a robbery while walking to his aunt’s and uncle’s house in northeast Baltimore. He was taken to a hospital, where he was pronounced dead. Gordon was in town to attend his cousin’s wedding.



  1. Shoot him in the same way and use the same gun. Or, better yet, cut his limbs off one at a time. Give him sedation though so that PETA doesn’t freak out.

  2. Yaapchik,
    Ever heard of it being illegal to have “Cruel and Unusual” punishment? Worse than what happens to the criminal is what we as a society become when we first tolerate then cheer on horrific torture in the name of punishment.
