Trevor White, Soul Food Restaurant Co-Owner, Among Six People Killed in Baltimore Weekend Shootings

Six people were killed in shootings over the weekend in Baltimore, including one of the owners of a soul food restaurant in Little Italy.

Trevor White, one of the co-owners of RYMKS Bar and Grille, attended AFRAM on Friday and was part of a podcast in which he talked about being a Black businessman in Baltimore. White, 40, promoted his businesses and pushed for other minorities to start their own.

“Baltimore City is a great place to open a business, start a business, and build your footprint,” White said in the podcast. “My thing is the more businesses I can be a part of, the more businesses I can open, the more ability I have to employ people and get people to work.”

He was killed hours later. Police said officers were called around 4:30 a.m. Saturday to reports of gunfire in northeast Baltimore. Police said officers arrived on Lakeside Avenue and found White shot multiple times. He died at the scene.

A sign posted on the restaurant’s door read: “Due to unfortunate events, RYMKS Bar and Grille will not be opening today (Monday). We look forward to your support in the future.”
