Driver’s husband says Cheryl McCormack’s car broke down on White Avenue

A 51-year-old DoorDash driver was fatally shot Sunday in northeast Baltimore, her family told 11 News.
The husband of Cheryl McCormack said his wife was killed after her car broke down on White Avenue while she was making a delivery.
According to Baltimore police, two men approached the car around 2:18 a.m. Sunday in the 3900 block of White Avenue and shot McCormack while trying to rob her. McCormack died at the scene, police said.
“My guess is my wife can be stubborn and she wasn’t going to give up her money and cellphone,” said McCormack’s husband, who did not want to be identified.
McCormack’s husband said he must now shift his focus to his children.
“My concerns right now are with the family. I have three kids — my two oldest are helping me out tremendously. I have a 19-year-old and he’s in shock. And then, I have my brother-in-law, who’s my left arm. And that’s how we look at it,” he said.
McCormack’s death comes after another violent weekend in Baltimore City.
Police recorded a total of six homicides, seven non-fatal shootings and 25 robberies.
Despite that, the Baltimore Police Department said there were also 84 arrests, and another 64 warrants issued the same time.
“I give them credit for what they do. They are excellent employees of the city,” McCormack’s husband said.
McCormack’s husband said he is grateful for law enforcement, but not so for city leaders. He said he plans to write to them about his frustrations.
Meanwhile, Baltimore Mayor Brandon Scott responded to the weekend’s violence, saying in a statement: “Baltimore, we must be better. The level of senseless violence occurring across our city is sickening. I met with police leadership Monday evening to ensure that we continue to focus and further our coordinated efforts on those who continue to carry out acts of violence in our city to reduce violent crime. We will continue to partner with local, state and federal law enforcement agencies to bring all resources to bear in this fight for the safety of Baltimore City. But we cannot do this alone, and the police cannot solve this problem alone. It will take all of us, every single resident in Baltimore, rolling up their sleeves and getting in this fight to curb the current cycle of violence and bring about sustained reductions in violence across our city.”
McCormack’s husband said he sees it differently.
“Unfortunately, Baltimore City does not take care of their own, and that’s how I look at it right now,” he said.
But McCormack’s husband said he remains unconvinced, now left to mourn and bury his wife, another victim to city violence.
Scott also said he met with law enforcement leadership on Monday to talk about the weekend violence. He also said that the city will continue to work with local, state and federal partners to fight for safety in the city.
