Two men found fatally shot in separate incidents

City police are investigating the fatal shootings of two unidentified men. One was shot last night in Northeast Baltimore, the other was found dead yesterday afternoon near Mondawmin Mall.

The latest homicide occurred about 8 p.m. in the 3000 block of Echodale Ave. in Hamilton, where police investigating a shooting report found an unconscious man in his 20s lying on the front porch of a house bleeding from multiple gunshot wounds. He died 45 minutes later at Johns Hopkins Hospital.

Two men - one wearing a werewolf Halloween mask - were observed running from the scene and were being sought, police said.

The other victim was found about 5 p.m. in a wooded area off the 3000 block of Tioga Parkway by several youths walking along a path. Detective John Riddick said the man had been shot several times and appeared to have been dead for about a day.

Officer indicted on theft, misconduct charges

A Southeastern District probationary police officer was indicted yesterday by a city grand jury on charges of felony theft and misconduct in office, stemming from a departmental sting operation last week, prosecutors said.

Officer Christopher M. Beebe, 28, of the 3500 block of Fieldcreek Way in Fullerton was tested in an integrity sting Oct. 23, when police placed drugs and cash in an alley and called dispatchers to report it there, police sources have said.

The sources have said that Beebe turned in the drugs but not the money. He is charged with failing to submit $797 to the evidence control unit. Beebe, who has been suspended with pay, could not be reached for comment.

TOWSON - About 100 Baltimore County customers lost water yesterday morning when workers damaged a 12-inch water line at Boyce and Charles streets in Towson.

Greenwood, the county school system's headquarters nearby, had no water. The threat of having no water led Loyola Blakefield school to cancel classes for the day, though the school never lost water service, said Warren Williams, acting chief of utility maintenance for Baltimore City's Department of Public Works.
