Two fatal shootings Sunday and another early yesterday have pushed the city's homicide toll to 199, compared with 187 at the same time a year ago.

In the latest case, police officers called to the 5100 block of Lodestone Way in Northeast Baltimore shortly after 1 a.m. yesterday found the victim - 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 man in his late teens lying face up 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 man was pronounced dead at the scene, and police withheld his name pending notification of relatives.

The third 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.
