A 16-year-old East Baltimore youth was fatally shot last night outside a dwelling in the Latrobe Homes public housing complex, police said.

The victim was standing outside a low-rise apartment building in the 900 block of Webb Court, talking with four or five friends, when a gunman approached and shot him in the head, said Detective Irvin C. Bradley of the homicide squad.

The victim died instantly, Bradley said.

He said the gunman fled on foot.

The victim's name was withheld pending notification of his family, Bradley said.

He said no one was arrested and no motive was known. Anyone with information is urged to call Bradley at 410-396-2100.
