Two killed in city shootings

Two men were found shot to death yesterday morning on opposite sides of Baltimore in the city's latest homicides, city police reported.

One unidentified victim was found fatally shot in a car in Northeast Baltimore, and about nine hours earlier the other man was fatally shot on a street in Southwest Baltimore.

No arrests had been made, and police knew of no motives in the homicides.

Responding to reported gunshots shortly before 9 a.m., police officers and Fire Department paramedics found an unresponsive man locked in a 1998 Lexus in the 2600 block of Evergreen Ave., police said. Firefighters broke the car door to remove the man and found that he had suffered gunshot wounds to the head, said Agent Donny Moses, a police spokesman.

Moses said the victim was not carrying personal identification, and investigators were trying to identify him.

About 12:05 a.m., police responded to another shooting, in the 2600 block of Dulany St. and found Howard Jones, 36, suffering from a gunshot wound to the head. Jones, of the 3000 block of Thorndale Ave. in Northwest Baltimore, died about 50 minutes later at the Maryland Shock Trauma Center, police said.

The killings brought the city's toll from homicides this year to 165, compared with 166 at the corresponding time last year, police said.
