A single bullet to the head today ended the life of a 23-year-old Baltimore man whose body was found in a stairwell at the George B. Murphy Homes in West Baltimore.
Police identified the victim as Charles O. Dodd Jr., 23, a resident of the housing project at 1058 Argyle Ave.
Evidence found near Dodd's body led police to report the killing was drug-related.
City homicide detective Frank Barlow said a caller told police just before 4 a.m. that a man had been found shot in a stairwell near the fourth floor of the project. Officers found Dodd lying on the steps. He was pronounced dead at the scene.
Police had no suspects. No weapon was found.
