City police hunting gunman in three garage robberies

Baltimore police are looking for a man who they say robbed three downtown garage attendants at gunpoint over the weekend, netting more than $700.

No one was injured in the robberies, which occurred Friday and Saturday nights when the gunman approached garage attendants and demanded cash, police said.

Police described the robber as a light-skinned African-American in his mid-30s, about 5 feet 11 inches tall and 150 pounds. He had long hair which in at least one of the robberies was braided, police said.

The first robbery occurred at Landmark Parking at 1 South St. about 11:20 p.m. Friday, police said. The others occurred Saturday night about an hour apart - the first at Arrow Parking at 204 E. Lombard St. about 9:25 p.m., the other at Towne Park at 101 W. Fayette St.

Anyone with information was asked to call the Police Department's citywide robbery unit, 410- 366-6341, or Metro Crime Stoppers, 866-7-LOCKUP.

Man, 26, is found fatally shot

A 26-year old Baltimore man was found fatally shot behind George G. Kelson Elementary School on Gold Street early yesterday, city police said.

Devin Wright of the 1300 block of Stockton St. was pronounced dead at the scene at 2:15 a.m., said Donny Moses, a city police spokesman. Police said yesterday they knew of no motive and had no suspects.

Wright's killing is the 198th homicide this year, equaling the number of killings at this time last year.
