February 26, 2000

An 18-year-old man was shot and killed yesterday afternoon in the middle of a West Baltimore street, according to police who said they know of no motive or suspects in the city's latest slaying.

Few details were released last night. Agent Ragina L. Cooper, a department spokeswoman, said the man was found in the 1700 block of Presstman St., west of North Mount Street in the Sandtown-Winchester neighborhood. He had been shot several times.

Cooper said the victim has been tentatively identified, but his name was not released.

Detectives were interviewing witnesses at headquarters last night. It was the 38th homicide in Baltimore this year.
