An unidentified man in his mid-20s was fatally shot yesterday in an East Baltimore public housing complex, city police said.

About 3 p.m., Southeastern District officers responded to a report of a man shot in the 1500 block of May Court at the Lafayette Homes complex and found the victim lying on the ground suffering from a gunshot wound.

The man died after being taken to Johns Hopkins Hospital, authorities said.

Anyone with information about the killing was urged to call Detective Thomas Martin at 410-396-2100.

FOR THE RECORD - An article in some editions yesterday incorrectly identified the public housing complex where a man was fatally shot early yesterday. The homicide occurred on May Court at Douglass Homes.
