Tara Labang Wiki – Tara Labang BIography
Tara Labang and two other people killed in an apparent double murder-suicide Saturday from Baltimore City to Howard County worked as nurse anaesthetists at area hospitals.
Police said Rajaee Shareef Black, 44, fatally shot his ex-girlfriend Labang inside a home in South Baltimore. He then travelled to Columbia and gunned down his ex-wife, Wendy Natalie Black, 42, police said.
She was 44 years old.
Baltimore Police Department’s Southern District station got a call around 1:30 p.m. about a residential alarm in the 1500 block of Marshall St. Officers found the door kicked in and, inside the home, officers discovered Labang shot to death.
Less than an hour later, Howard County Police officers were called to Columbia’s Kings Contrivance neighbourhood in the 7300 block of Eden Brook Drive for a report of shots fired. Police found both Wendy and Rajaee Black dead.
Baltimore Police tried to alert Howard County authorities to a video of Black on Facebook Live where he alluded to the fact he was planning to kill his ex-wife — but it was too late.
On Saturday afternoon, I was informed of the tragic news of 3 CRNAs who were killed that rocked my core and shattered my heart. I mentored them since they were nurses. Three souls are gone. I am taking a break and need to help heal the Diversity CRNA community. I am crushed 💔 pic.twitter.com/XSSSEXJqgx

“I never thought I would be that guy,” he said in the video. “I can’t go to prison, so the person that really started my depression and all of this is my ex-wife. So, she next. Then I’m going to do myself too.”
Black said in the video that he was upset about custody issues between the two women. Court records show a lengthy custody battle between him and Wendy Black that’s been unfolding for three years. Records also showed a history of domestic violence charges but does not show who filed the charges.
Howard police said the Blacks’ two young children were inside his grey BMW while the killings occurred but were found unharmed.
Court records show Rajaee Black filed a federal lawsuit against the University of Maryland Medical System in January, claiming he was wrongfully fired after exposing a doctor who allegedly was stashing drugs in his locker.
The system declined to comment on the case, citing not commenting on pending litigation.
Dr Lena Gould, founder and CEO of the Diversity in Nurse Anesthesia Mentorship Program, said in a tweet early Monday that she mentored both Blacks and Labang.
“On Saturday afternoon, I was informed of the tragic news of 3 CRNAs who were killed that rocked my core and shattered my heart,” she wrote. “I mentored them since they were nurses. Three souls are gone.”
