Man, 32, fatally shot; woman's decomposed body discovered

A 32-year-old man was fatally shot in East Baltimore late Sunday, and city police discovered the badly decomposed body of a woman in a rowhouse in Northwest Baltimore earlier in the weekend, authorities reported yesterday.

Police said the shooting victim, Robert Lee Goines Jr. of the 1400 block of Eager St., was shot in the 700 block of E. Biddle St. about 10:30 p.m. Sunday and died about a half-hour later at Johns Hopkins Hospital.

In the other case early Saturday, a man arrested on drug charges told of a body in a vacant rowhouse in the 4200 block of Pall Mall Road, police said. Officers found the unidentified woman's body about 2 a.m., and the state medical examiner ruled the death a homicide. Agent Martin Bartness, a police spokesman, declined to reveal the cause of death because the investigation is continuing.

The deaths bring the number of city homicides this year to 18. Anyone with information about the killings is asked to call homicide detectives at 410-396-2100.

N.J. man shot by police charged with kidnapping

A New Jersey man who was shot several times by police officers Friday night after leading them on a brief car chase has been charged with carjacking and kidnapping a Virginia man, police said.

Jaron Reevey, 20, of Neptune, N.J., was charged in a warrant with kidnapping Aaron Jones, 20, of Hampton, Va. Sabrina Wright, 19, of Neptune also was charged with kidnapping. Police said a man and a woman handcuffed Jones, threw him in the trunk of his Chevrolet Cavalier in Richmond, Va., and drove him to Baltimore, where they cashed in bus tickets at the downtown Greyhound station. Jones escaped and alerted an officer, police said. As an officer approached the car, the driver rammed a police car and led a chase that ended with a crash at Ensor and Monument streets.

Police said the man fired twice at police, who returned fire, hitting him several times. Reevey was reported in fair condition last night at Johns Hopkins Hospital.
