Baltimore Homicide Victim IDed as Police Spokesman's Brother

Posted: Updated:

BALTIMORE (AP)- Baltimore's 173th homicide victim of the year has been identified as the brother of the police department's spokesman.
    
Twenty-four-year-old Dionay Smith, the younger brother of T.J. Smith, was found fatally shot inside his home at about 8 p.m. on Sunday.
    
His brother posted about his death on social media.
    
T.J. Smith wrote in a statement on Facebook that "to many, he will be #173, but to me and my family, he's Dion, a brother, a son, a father, a friend, a nephew and a kind soul."
    
Since Smith's death on Sunday, there have been three more homicides, bringing this year's total to 176 - significantly higher than the same time period last year. No suspects have been arrested in Smith's killing.
