September 12, 1997|BY A SUN STAFF WRITER

An unidentified youth was fatally shot yesterday evening while he sat on the front steps of a Southeast Baltimore rowhouse, a police investigator said.

No arrest had been made and police knew of no motive for the killing.

Homicide Detective Kevin Turner said the victim, who was black and appeared to be 16 to 18 years old, carried no identification. He was alone on the steps in the 200 block of N. Milton Ave. about 6 p.m. when the gunman approached and fired several shots.

The youth was hit in the upper torso, and at least one bullet pierced the door of the house. No one inside the building was injured.

Turner said no one in the area recognized the victim, who was pronounced dead at Johns Hopkins Hospital at 6: 19 p.m.
