June 02, 1999|By Peter Hermann | Peter Hermann,SUN STAFF

Police officers responding to a complaint of gunfire yesterday found an unidentified man dead in a vacant West Baltimore rowhouse, but investigators reported no motive or suspects in the case.

Lt. Steven R. Ossmus said the victim was found on the second floor of the two-story, boarded-up house in the 1100 block of N. Stockton St. a few minutes before noon. He was pronounced dead at the scene, Ossmus said.

Homicide detectives took a young man to police headquarters for questioning, but said they knew little about the slaying yesterday afternoon. They say the victim was shot twice in the head.

Also yesterday, detectives were investigating two fatal shootings that occurred Sunday morning in the city.

Ryan William Bailey, 19, of no known address, was found wounded at East Federal Street and Guilford Avenue shortly after 2 a.m. Police said Bailey was taken to Johns Hopkins Hospital, where he was pronounced dead.

About 7: 20 Sunday morning, police said they found Salvatore Domico, 33, of the 2400 block of Foster Ave., dead of multiple gunshot wounds in the 400 block of N. Clinton St. in Southeast Baltimore.
