December 10, 1990|By Richard Irwin | Richard Irwin,Evening Sun Staff

City police today continued to search for the killer of a 21-year-old southwest Baltimore man, who was found fatally shot in the street just a few feet from his home yesterday afternoon.

Homicide detective Dan Shea said the victim, Kevin Jones, of the 2100 block of Boyd St., was taken by ambulance to the University of Maryland Medical Center, where he was pronounced dead from multiple gunshot wounds to the upper body and head shortly before 4 p.m.

Shea said Jones was found in the 2100 block of Boyd St. at 3:40 p.m. yesterday. He said it was not known if the man had been attempting to escape his killer by seeking the safety of his home or was attacked as he left the home.

Shea said that although members of Jones' family were home when he was found near his front door, they were unable to help police with that information.

"It's hard to say if he was running toward his home," said Shea, "because he may have rolled on the ground after being shot."

Members of Jones' family followed the ambulance to the hospital.

The detective said nothing in Jones' pockets or at the scene indicated a motive for the slaying and that little information is known about what occurred.

Shea said police had no witnesses, no suspects and no motive.

"We haven't gotten one phone call about this homicide," Shea said.

Anyone having information about Jones' slaying should call the homicide squad at 396-2100.
