Tydi was found with a gunshot wound on the 2400 block of Guilford Avenue at about 4:15 a.m. on Monday 26th November. She died in hospital.

A police spokesman said that there were reports of a loud argument preceding the shots and that a dark-colored car was seen speeding from the scene.

Baltimore police are appealing for help from the public in their investigation into the Nov. 26 shooting death of a transgender woman who was found unconscious on a street after neighbors called police to report a shooting.

Police spokesperson T.J. Smith told the Baltimore Sun in an interview recorded on video that a transgender woman was found unconscious on the side of a street on the 2400 block of Guilford Avenue about 4:15 a.m. on Monday. He said the woman was taken to a nearby hospital where she was pronounced dead a short time later.

“At this time we don’t have a lot to go on,” Smith said in the interview. “We know there was some sort of argument that took place and during that argument it looks like a person – one individual – pulled out a gun and shot the female and left her on the side of the road.”
