Baltimore--Breyon Carson, 22, has been arrested and charged with trying to cover up what appeared to be her boyfriend’s involvement in a double shooting in the 1100 block of Cherry Hill Road on May 24 in which 16-month-old Carter Scott was killed.
Carson has been charged as an accessory in the shooting death and with giving a false statement to police.
Police said Carter and his father, Rashaw Scott, were the targets of three men—Cornell Harvey, 26, Eddie Traver, 20, and Rashid Mayo, 22—who opened fire on the pair who were sitting in a parked red Chevrolet.
At the time of the shooting Scott was in the driver’s seat; Carter was in the back seat.
Police said around 7:30 p.m. the three suspects fired at least 16 rounds into the car hitting both Carter and Scott. Carter suffered multiple gunshot wounds and was transported to a local hospital. The toddler was shot at least once in the leg. Police said the unresponsive boy was transported to a local area hospital, where he was pronounced dead.
According to police records, around 11:00 p.m. on the night of the shooting, Carson called 911 and reported her car, a dark grey Toyota Solaro, which was used as a getaway car by one suspect in the shooting, was missing.
Police said they later determined her story was “untruthful.” Records claim Carson later told law enforcement officers that she allowed Mayo to borrow the car around 5 a.m. the morning of the shooting.
Baltimore police said Carson tried to cover up Mayo’s alleged involvement in the crime by saying her vehicle was stolen. Police records show Mayo and Carson lived together in the 800 block of Druid Hill Park Lake Drive.
Harvey and Traver have been arrested and charged in the shooting. Law enforcement agents are still looking for Mayo. Baltimore police said they believe he fled Baltimore and is currently hiding in New York.
According to police, Carson will not reveal information about the current whereabouts of Mayo.
