Dispute in Lansdowne leaves one youth dead, two injured

September 09, 2002|By Richard Irwin | Richard Irwin,SUN STAFF

A 14-year-old Southwest Baltimore boy died yesterday evening and two others were hospitalized after being stabbed during an argument in a Lansdowne apartment building, Baltimore County police reported.

Officers from the Wilkens Precinct arrived at the Circle Terrace Apartments in the 2900 block of Lakebrook Circle about 6 p.m. for a reported stabbing, and found one victim outside, bleeding from at least one wound, said a spokesman, Cpl. Ron Brooks.

Inside the two-story building, police found two other victims, he said.

Names were withheld pending notification of relatives.

Brooks said that no weapon had been recovered and that no arrests were made last night.

Two of the victims - a man in his 20s, and the Baltimore boy, who lived in the 2500 block of Ridgely St. in the city's Mount Winans neighborhood, about two miles away - were taken by county ambulances to Maryland Shock Trauma Center. The boy died there about an hour later.

Police had no information on the condition of the man at Shock Trauma, or on that of the other victim, who was taken by ambulance to Johns Hopkins Hospital.

Brooks said residents of the apartment building were being interviewed at the precinct station by homicide detectives.

Precinct officers had been dispatched to the same apartment building shortly before the triple stabbing, Brooks said, adding that he did not know the nature of the call.
