A student at the Western School of Technology in Catonsville was found shot to death on a parking lot there last night, Baltimore County police said.

Police were withholding the identity of the victim, a man in his 30s who was attending a class in building trades, until his family could be notified.

William J. Toohey, a county police spokesman, said other students told investigators that the victim's beeper went off about 7: 30 p.m., and he left a first-floor classroom in the school in the 100 block of Kenwood Ave.

After classes ended about 8: 25 p.m., several students walking across a school parking lot came upon the man's body. One of the students ran back into the school and alerted a school official, who called police.

A county ambulance crew pronounced the man dead of multiple gunshot wounds.

The school in the Paradise section of Catonsville features classes in plumbing, electricity, carpentry and sheet-metal work. It is sponsored by the Associated Builders and Contractors Inc. and operated by Catonsville Community College, Mr. Toohey said.
