Two men in their 20s found fatally shot in an alley

City police were investigating the slayings of two men in their 20s found shot yesterday near 25th Street and Harford Road.

A janitor called Baltimore school police officers to report that he had found two bodies in the 1600 block of Clough St. about 4: 30 p.m, roughly the same time that city police were called by neighbors who heard gunshots, police said.

Police said the bodies were in an alley about 30 feet apart. Investigators said at least 12 shots had been fired. They would not release the identities of the victims.

ROSEDALE -- Lightning during yesterday's storm struck a 2 1/2 -story bungalow in the 1600 block of Rosewick Ave. starting a fire that damaged the top of the house, fire officials said. No one was injured.

Four engines and a ladder truck responded to the 7: 49 a.m. fire, said Capt. John Veach of the county fire department. The home's occupants, Veronica Miller, 82, and her son, Frank Hallameyer, 61, were coming out the front door as the firefighters arrived.

The fire burned the attic, roof and second floor of the home, Veach said, but no damage estimate was available yesterday.
