The funeral services for Ray Antwone Glasgow, III, the 17-year old standout student athlete for Baltimore City College High School, will be handled by Vaughn Greene at Perfecting Prayer & Praise Ministries, 7610 Baltimore Annapolis Blvd.
The public viewing for Glasgow will be May 11, 4 p.m.-8 p.m., at Vaughn Greene, 4905 York Rd., in Northeast Baltimore. The wake is May 12 at 10:30 a.m., followed by the funeral at 11:00 a.m.
Glasgow, who played football and lacrosse for City, was fatally shot over the weekend in Southeast Baltimore.
Baltimore police were called to the 100 block of Eden Street near the Perkins Homes and the City Springs Elementary/Middle school field around 6 p.m. on May 5.
When police arrived, they found Glasgow and an unidentified 18 year-old suffering from gunshot wounds.
Glasgow was pronounced dead on the scene and there is no word on the 18-year-old’s condition. Glasgow was riding in a car with three other people when he was fatally shot.
Police released images of a White Nissan Altima (no known year or license plate) they believe the suspect or suspects may have been driving.
City College Lacrosse Coach Anthony Ryan, known as “Coach Merc”, said that Glasgow had just left practice before he was killed.
“I was devastated. I couldn’t believe it. The kids were calling. We’re having a hard time with this,” Ryan told reporters.
Glasgow, the lacrosse team captain, was scheduled to play against rival high school Mervo in the division A lacrosse championship on May 7. Unfortunately, for the Black Knights of City, they came up short against their Eastside rivals, 9-7.
The Baltimore Sun listed Ray as one of the “Key Players to Watch” in advance of the two teams’ regular-season rivalry matchup last month, which the Mervo Mustangs won, 7-5.
“Ray got the boys ignited. He got a fire under them,” Ryan said. “You see the enthusiasm he had for it all.”
Police Commissioner Darryl De Sousa said Monday during a press conference that Glasgow was not the intended target of the shooting. De Sousa called the killing a tragedy, saying the teen was not involved in any sort of criminal activity.
De Sousa said Glasgow’s killing was “a tragic case of mistaken identity.”
