The bloody body of an unidentified man was found late last night in a Southwest Baltimore alley - the city's fourth homicide since Sunday.

Investigating a report of a body, officers found the victim lying dead in an alley in the 1800 block of McHenry St. Police said it was uncertain whether he had been shot or bludgeoned.

The others slain were shot - two of them Sunday, the other early yesterday.

Officers called to the 5100 block of Lodestone Way in Northeast Baltimore shortly after 1 a.m. yesterday found an unidentified man who appeared to be in his early 20s lying dead outside, said Officer Troy Harris, a police spokesman.

About 10:45 p.m. Sunday, police found a victim in his late teens lying face up and dead near a pay phone in the 1600 block of Barclay St. in East Baltimore, said Sheri Albrecht, a police spokeswoman. Several shots had been fired, although it was not clear last night how many wounds the man suffered.

The name was withheld pending notification of relatives.

The fourth victim, Terrell Anton Fulton, 23, of the 600 block of N. Pulaski St., was found shot once in the head as officers responded to a call at 12:20 a.m. Sunday reporting a shooting in the 3900 block of Edgewood Road. Fulton was pronounced dead at 4 p.m. Sunday at Sinai Hospital, Albrecht said.

Robbery was the apparent motive in Fulton's killing, although no money or other items were taken, Albrecht said.
