An unidentified man was found shot inside a parked car in Northwest Baltimore yesterday evening and died a short time later at Sinai Hospital, city police said.

About 8 p.m., Northwestern District officers responding on a call to the 4000 block of Lewiston Ave., near Gist Avenue, found the man bleeding from at least one gunshot wound.

City police also are investigating the death of a 24-year-old Baltimore County man who was found lying in a street Saturday morning near Leakin Park.

The man, Leonard Nathaniel Garrett, lived in the 900 block of McDowell Lane in Halethorpe - about five miles from where he was found.

Police were called to the 800 block of Winans Way about 8:30 a.m. Garrett was not responsive and was taken to St. Agnes Hospital, where he was pronounced dead, said Officer Troy Harris, a police spokesman. Police said it appeared that Garrett had been hit on the head with a blunt object.

Police said they had no suspects and know of no motive for either killing.
