February 02, 2004|BY A SUN STAFF WRITER

City police are investigating the killings of two men in apparently unrelated incidents - one of them fatally shot early yesterday after leaving a bar in Southwest Baltimore, the other found dead of a gunshot wound Saturday night at the edge of Leakin Park.

The latest reported homicide occurred shortly after 2 a.m. yesterday in the 3300 block of Old Frederick Road, where Jason Lamont Oden, 23, of the 500 block of S. Beechfield Ave. was shot at least once moments after he left a nearby bar, said Detective Dave Peckoo. Oden died a short time later at St. Agnes HealthCare, Peckoo said.

About 10:30 p.m. Saturday, a woman was walking her dog near the 4700 block of Franklintown Road when the pet led her to the body of a man lying face-down a few feet from a trail leading into the park.

Police said the man had been shot in the head. His identity was withheld pending notification of family members.
