No arrests in 2 slayings over weekend, police report

November 18, 1996|By Frank Roylance | Frank Roylance,SUN STAFF

Baltimore homicide detectives were investigating a drive-by killing and what they suspect was a fatal neighborhood dispute over the weekend, but they had made no arrests in either case by last night.

A drive-by shooting about 3: 15 a.m. Saturday in the 800 block of W. Fayette St. ended in the death of one man and the wounding of a second, said Detective Michael Glen.

Wallace Norris, 52, of an unknown address was shot in the chest and died about noon Saturday at Maryland Shock Trauma Center.

The second victim, 22, was shot once in the right arm. He was in serious but stable condition yesterday at Shock Trauma.

Glen said the two men apparently were standing in a group of about 10 people when a vehicle came down the block and its occupants opened fire on them.

Police knew of no motive or suspects.

The shooting death Friday of Wayne Caroll Wilgis, 19, of the 400 block of W. 24th St. was being linked to an "ongoing neighborhood dispute," Glen said.

Wilgis was found about 6: 45 p.m. Friday, lying on the sidewalk outside the Hard Times Bar in the 2800 block of Huntingdon Ave.

Glen said investigators believed Wilgis was shot while in the 2700 block of Miles Ave. but fell a block away on Huntingdon.

He was taken to the University of Maryland Shock Trauma Center, where he was pronounced dead a short time later.

Glen said the suspects in the killing may have been neighbors of Wilgis.

Homicide detectives indicated they were investigating a third weekend killing but they refused to release any details.
