April 12, 1993|By Richard Irwin | Richard Irwin,Staff Writer

A 20-year-old west Baltimore man was fatally shot last night when he answered a knock at his door.

Police said the victim, Scott Kittrill, of the 600 block of Cumberland St., and another man were arguing over a music tape in Mr. Kittrill's home around 10:30 p.m. when the other man left in anger.

About 20 minutes later, the other man returned and knocked on Mr. Kittrill's front door in an effort to get him to open the door.

Heated words were reportedly exchanged between the men until the man outside the house fired a handgun through the door. Police said at least one bullet struck Mr. Kittrill in the torso, knocking him to the hallway floor. The gunman fled and Mr. Kittrill was pronounced dead at the scene.

Charged in a warrant with first-degree murder and being sought is Antonio Amos, 22, of the 1200 block of N. Broadway.
