A 43-year-old man has died of injuries from a beating at a Northeast Baltimore bar last week, city police said yesterday.

Eric Hester of the 4200 block of Seidel Ave. died Sunday at Johns Hopkins Hospital, and an autopsy on Monday indicated he died of head injuries suffered when he was hit in the face with a pool stick and kicked in the head, according to police.

The beating occurred about 10:30 p.m. Oct. 22 at Sheldon's in the 4300 block of Belair Road, police said.

Detectives continued yesterday to investigate a fatal stabbing that occurred about 9:10 p.m. Monday in the 5500 block of Harford Road. Jamall Hill, 23, believed to be a resident of Southeast Baltimore, was chased into the street by three men and stabbed, police said.

FOR THE RECORD - Articles in some Wednesday and Thursday editions of The Sun incorrectly stated that Halcyon Avenue, scene of a fatal shooting in an apartment house, was in Baltimore's Morgan Park neighborhood. In fact, it is located in the adjacent Lauraville neighborhood. The Sun regrets the error.

Another investigation began last night when a man was found dead in a house in the Morgan Park section of Northeast Baltimore. Police said the body bore signs of foul play, and called the death "suspicious" while awaiting an autopsy to determine if it was a homicide.

About 5:30 p.m., police responding to a call of a suspicious condition at a two-story apartment house in the 2700 block of Halcyon Ave., near Harford Road, found the front door ajar and a man lying dead in a room. His name was withheld.

Meanwhile, an unidentified man was reported in grave condition and on life support at Maryland Shock Trauma Center after being shot about 12:30 a.m. yesterday in the 800 block of Edmondson Ave. in West Baltimore.
