- Today, friends and family gathered to honor a 15-year-old who was shot and killed in northwest Baltimore. Jaileel Jones' family say he was a youth advocate. So in his honor, the Tay National Foundation, started by NFL player Deonte Harris, committed funding to the Peer-to-Peer Mediation Program in Baltimore. The program gives young people avenues to resolve disputes without violence. Jones was killed on March 6 after an alleged argument with a 14-year-old boy. The suspect is charged with first- and second-degree murder charges.
