City police today continued their search for Kenneth Lambert, 25, of the 2000 block of Kennedy Ave., in the fatal shooting and attempted robbery Tuesday of a 23-year-old barber outside a carryout in the 2600 block of Harford Road.

Police said a warrant charging Lambert with first-degree murder and attempted armed robbery was issued yesterday after witnesses gave police information.

The victim, Derek Session, who worked in his father's barber shop on Kirk Avenue and lived in the 1500 block of Gorsuch Ave., was standing outside the Star Carryout in the 2600 block of Harford Road shortly before 11 p.m. when he was accosted by a man armed with a handgun who demanded Session's jewelry.

Police said a struggle over the gun broke out and that a shot was fired harmlessly into the air. As the struggle continued, police said, the gunman gained control of the weapon and shot Session in the neck.

The gunman fled and Session was pronounced dead at the scene a short time later by an ambulance crew.

Police said Session was wearing jewelry when he was found by police and his killer fled without taking any of his property.

Anyone having information about the suspect's whereabouts is urged to call the homicide squad at 396-2100.
