An unidentified man who apparently was visiting his girlfriend in Baltimore was shot and killed last night after he answered a knock at the front door of her apartment, city police said.

The name of the victim has not yet been established by police. He was fatally wounded about 8:40 p.m. at the door of the apartment in the 200 block of N. Amity St. The victim was pronounced dead of a chest wound at University Hospital nearly an hour later, police said.

Police said they are seeking a 19-year-old suspect who lives in the 1700 block of Druid Hill Ave. The suspect was believed to have stolen drugs from the victim prior to the shooting, police said.
