Keith Daniels, Timothy’s mother-in-law, said that the former was a loving and kind family man. It is no doubt to state that his unfortunate death has shocked his quiet North Baltimore neighborhood. Talking about Timothy’s death, a neighbor Freda Collavini stated that she just feels bad that it happened to him and his family and it is just sad that it is done and nothing can bring him back to his family. According to Baltimore police, Reynolds was driving his SUV through the intersection of Light and Conway Streets near Inner Harbour and had a heated interaction.
Baltimore police further stated that Reynolds pulled over and got out of his SUV, wielding a baseball bat. Police Commissioner Michael Harrison said that they do not really know whether Reynolds actually hit the four to five young men at the intersection or not but they know that one of those guys pulled out a gun and shot Timothy. After the incident, Reynolds’ baseball bat, covered in blood, was left at the scene. Taking his health into consideration, Timothy was taken to a nearby hospital for further treatment. However, the man could not be saved and he died. On another side, the young men fled on foot before officers arrived at the scene.
