June 23, 1996|By Dan Morse | Dan Morse,SUN STAFF

Baltimore City homicide detectives were looking for witnesses and motives yesterday in three separate shootings.

At 3: 25 a.m. yesterday, police were called to the 5000 block of Palmer Ave., where they found the body of Angelo Howard, 31, of the 5200 block of Denmore Ave. He had been shot many times, said Agent Robert W. Weinhold Jr., a Baltimore police spokesman.

Police knew of no suspects in the case, Weinhold said.

Late Friday, police were called to the 3100 block of Ravenwood Ave., where they found the body of Colon Booker, 19, who had been shot in the back, Weinhold said.

Jerry Booker, 23, also had been shot in the neck and left arm. He managed to get to John Hopkins Hospital, where he was listed in critical but stable condition yesterday. Weinhold couldn't say if the Bookers were related.

Earlier Friday, a citizen looked inside a Nissan 300 ZX parked in the 2300 block of Avalon Ave. and found a body, police said. The unidentified man apparently died of a gunshot wound, Weinhold said.

A group of loggers working about 10 miles west of Salisbury in Wicomico County Friday afternoon found the body of a man buried under about 4 feet of earth, authorities said. The identity of the man was not known yesterday, and officials could not say how long the body had been there.

A head-on collision on Route 97 south of Westminster in Carroll County on Friday evening left one person dead and two injured.

Timothy Brian Shifflett, 17, of Sykesville was driving a 1990 Chevrolet Cavalier when it crossed the road's center line and struck a 1987 pickup driven by Charles Wilson Lovell, 44, of Cordova, Maryland State Police said.

Shifflett was pronounced dead on the scene. Lovell was listed in serious but stable condition at Maryland Shock Trauma Center in Baltimore yesterday. Lovell's passenger, Vincent Calvert Vigneri of Cambridge, was listed in critical but stable condition yesterday at Shock Trauma.
