A first-degree murder warrant was issued yesterday for the arrest of a suspect in the fatal shooting of another man in Southeast Baltimore early Saturday, police said.

Responding to a report of shots fired in the 100 block of N. Port St. about 1 a.m. Saturday, police found the body of Bobby Raymond Hurt, 37, lying in front of his home. He had been shot at least once in the head and was pronounced dead at the scene.

Witnesses told police that Hurt and another man were arguing shortly before the shooting. Information from the witnesses led to the warrant being issued.

Police declined to reveal the suspect's identity.
