A man shot to death in East Baltimore's Oliver neighborhood late Monday was identified yesterday as a 19-year-old from Baltimore County, city police said.
Glenard Byrd Jr. of the first block of Ambo Circle in Middle River, was found about 10:30 p.m. in the 1000 block of N. Bond St. suffering from multiple gunshot wounds, said Officer Troy Harris, a police spokesman.
FOR THE RECORD - An article in the Maryland section yesterday incorrectly stated that a victim of a homicide had earlier been charged with attempted murder in a shooting in March. Glenard L. Byrd Jr., 18, was shot and killed Monday in East Baltimore. Glenard A. Byrd Jr., 18, was charged with trying to kill a 41-year-old man in East Baltimore and is in jail awaiting trial, according to city police.
The Sun regrets the errors.
He was taken to Johns Hopkins Hospital, where he was pronounced dead, Harris said. He was the city's 223rd homicide victim this year. At this time last year, 220 people had been killed.
In March, Byrd was arrested on a warrant charging him with attempted murder in the January shooting of Alphonso Pankey in the 1800 block of Ashland Ave.
Pankey also has a lengthy criminal record, and in 2005 was sentenced to 12 years in prison for distributing drugs, according to court records. All but six months of the sentence was suspended.
