Slain man identified; name of drowning victim sought

Police have identified the victim of a fatal shooting early Wednesday in the 1600 block of E. Oliver St. in East Baltimore as Larnell Darrell Burrus, 24, of no fixed address.

Investigators were still trying to identify the man who jumped into the Inner Harbor about noon Wednesday and drowned after trying to steal a taxicab outside the Sheraton Inner Harbor, police spokeswoman Sherri Albrecht said yesterday. Police said they threw flotation devices at the man, who had jumped in the water near the 300 block of Light St., but he did not try to grab them.

Police were awaiting toxicology results to determine whether the man was under the influence at the time of the drowning, Albrecht said.
