An unidentified man, believed to be from New York City, was shot to death last night while walking down a West Baltimore street.

Police knew of no motive for the slaying.

Police said the victim was walking in the 800 block of N. Fremont Ave. around 11 p.m. when a red pickup truck with a camper on the rear slowed down and came abreast of him.

Witnesses told police that an occupant of the pickup truck fired at least two shots at the victim, hitting him in the upper torso.

As the pickup truck sped off, the victim staggered into the basement of a nearby house and collapsed.

Shortly after Western District police arrived on the scene, they requested an ambulance.

The man was transported to the Maryland Shock Trauma Center, where he died a short time later.

From Shock Trauma, the victim was removed to the state medical examiner's office for an autopsy and identification through fingerprints.
