An Edgewood man has been charged with the murder of a man in Baltimore City Feb. 25.

Kivi Ali Kennedy, 35, of the 800 block of Gilway Court in Edgewater Village, is charged with first- and second-degree murder, two counts each of attempted first- and second-degree murder, first- and second-degree assault, three counts of reckless endangerment, having a handgun on his person and in a vehicle, using a handgun to commit a violent crime, illegal possession of a regulated firearm and another drug/gun charge.

A city police officer was on patrol in the 1500 block of North Fulton Avenue in West Baltimore when a man came up to his car near Pressman Street and told the officer he had just been shot by a man in a vehicle that was attempting to pull away from the curb, said Det. Kevin Hagan, a spokesman for Baltimore City Police.

Another man, later identified as Kennedy, jumped out of the front passenger seat and took off running, Hagan said. The officer chased him through a couple alleys before arresting him.

The officer brought Kennedy back to the shooting scene, where the man who flagged down the officer said to Kennedy: “You’re the one that shot me,” Hagan said.

Police then found two other gunshot victims who were taken to Maryland Shock Trauma Center in Baltimore, where one of them, Dejuan Green, 24, died. The third shooting victim was taken to another hospital.

Police do not identify victims of nonfatal shootings in Baltimore City.

Police searched the car Kennedy jumped from and found a handgun. The weapon is being analyzed to determine if it was the weapon used in the murder.

Hagan said police do not know the relationship between the four men or the motive for the shooting.

According to court records, Kennedy was arrested on drug charges in 1992, when he was living in the 600 block of Cargill Court in Bel Air; the disposition of the case is unclear.

In July 2001, he was charged in Baltimore City Circuit Court with attempted first- and second-degree murder, assault and gun counts. He pleaded guilty in 2002 to carrying a handgun and was sentenced to three years in jail.

In a March 2007 incident, he was charged with multiple firearms offenses, and in February 2008 was convicted of carrying a handgun and sentenced to 10 years in jail with eight suspended. He was also put on five years of supervised probation.
