Police identify student killed in shooting

A stand out high school student is dead after a shooting in Northwest Baltimore.
Michael Mayfield, 17, was a senior at Edmondson Westside High School where he played on the baseball team, as well as performing with the band and as a member of JROTC.
His life ended in a blue van in the 2300 block of Lyndhurst Avenue near Gwynns Falls Park last night, and at that point, police were only releasing the barest details of his murder.
"When officers arrived they found a male in the block inside of a vehicle who was shot multiple times who was transported to an area hospital where he was pronounced deceased from his injuries," said Detective Jeremy Silbert of the Baltimore City Police Department.
We have now learned a man approached the van that Mayfield was riding in and shot him, and police are still trying to track down that suspect.
