City police identify three men killed in shootings Friday night

February 08, 2004|BY A SUN STAFF WRITER

Police have identified three men killed in apparently unrelated shootings that occurred within an hour of each other Friday night.

Shawn Charles Boston, 32, of Essex died of multiple gunshot wounds about 9 p.m. Friday in a car in the 2700 block of E. Eager St., said Agent Donny Moses, a police spokesman.

Officers found him after responding to a report of an injured woman sitting on a front stoop in the 900 block of Belnord Ave. The 34-year-old woman, who had an apparent gunshot wound to the abdomen, told police she and a friend had been shot in a vehicle, which she fled.

Police followed a trail of her blood around the corner to the car on East Eager Street, where Boston was slumped in the driver's seat.

The woman, whose name has not been released, was in critical condition at Johns Hopkins Hospital, Moses said.

In a separate incident, Larry Renea Jones, 26, of the 9200 block of Beowulf Circle died of multiple gunshot wounds about 9:15 p.m. Friday in the 5000 block of Frederick Ave.

Shortly before the shooting, there was an argument between men in two cars on Frederick Avenue, Moses said. Jones was shot while inside one of the cars, and was shot again outside the car, Moses said.

In the third killing, James Lavon Lewis, 16, of the 1000 block of N. Monroe St. was shot in the 1800 block of Mosher St. about 9:55 p.m. Friday.

Police knew of no motives and had no suspects in the killings of Lewis or Boston. They were pursuing leads in Jones' death, said Moses, who declined to elaborate.
