Two found shot dead in car



A man and woman were found dead yesterday in a parked car on a West Baltimore street - both with gunshot wounds in a double-killing that police said might have happened more than 12 hours earlier.

Names of the victims were being withheld pending notification of relatives, police said.

About 6 p.m. police received a 911 call reporting that two people sitting in a Chevrolet sedan in the 2300 block of W. Lanvale St. appeared to be dead.

Western District officers found the woman sitting dead at the steering wheel, and the man sitting next to her. Police said it appeared the victims were shot in the head or upper body from behind by someone seated in the back seat and that the pair might have been shot late Sunday or early yesterday.

Police said there was nothing in the car pointing to a motive for the slayings. The bodies were taken to the state medical examiner's office for autopsies.

City police yesterday also identified a man and boy who were gunned down in separate incidents in recent days, and authorities said they continued to seek information from the public in those killings.

Early Friday, officers responding to the 2300 block of Norfolk St. in Westport found David Galloway, 19, in an alley suffering from multiple gunshot wounds. Galloway was pronounced dead at 5:20 a.m. at Harbor Hospital, police said.

About 10 p.m. Sunday, police were called to the 3700 block of E. Baltimore St. and found Edward A. Curtis, 17, unresponsive on the ground suffering from several gunshots. Curtis, of the 2400 block of McElderry St., was pronounced dead an hour later at Johns Hopkins Hospital, police said.

Metro Crime Stoppers, 410-276-8888, is offering a reward.
