A Baltimore teen has been arrested and charged with the murder of a 51-year-old woman who was delivering food for DoorDash.
Cheryl McCormack, who was a grandmother and a wife, was with a friend while working for the food delivery service on January 24.
Around 2 a.m., her vehicle ran out of gas, and her friend walked to find a gas station while McCormack stayed at the car.
PEOPLE reported that the teen and another suspect allegedly approached the friend and attempted to rob him.
They also demanded that he take them to the car.
When they got to the vehicle, they demanded McCormack exit the vehicle, police say. But she refused to hand over her valuables, and that’s when the teen shot her and fled. She died at the scene.
Detectives interviewed witnesses and reviewed several surveillance cameras before releasing the videos in hopes of identifying the two suspects.
The teen turned himself in on Wednesday, according to WBAL-TV. He faces a first-degree murder charge. However, due to his age, his name has not been released.
He has not entered a plea and has no bond.
McCormack was a paralegal who was in between jobs and was delivering food to make ends meet.
“We are deeply saddened by this senseless attack and tragic loss of life,” DoorDash says in a statement. “Our thoughts are with Ms. McCormack’s loved ones during this unimaginably difficult time.”
McCormack’s brother-in-law made a Facebook post in her honor.
“If you want to do something to honor Cheryl, please be kind to someone who can give you nothing in return,” Mike Zellhofer wrote. “That was Cheryl. She had a heart of gold and it shows in her children. Love each other, my friends. Love each other.”
