A 36-year-old man and 16-year- old boy were victims of fatal gunfire in Baltimore over the weekend in separate, and apparently unrelated incidents, city police said yesterday.

The teenager, Shaun Tiller, was found lying in the 2500 block of E. Hoffman St. near Luzerne Avenue about 6:30 p.m. Saturday suffering from gunshot wounds to the chest and head, police said.

Tiller, whose address was not available, was taken by a city Fire Department ambulance to Johns Hopkins Hospital, where he died a short time later.

Police said he was the city's 21st homicide victim this year under the age of 17.

The other shooting victim was found Saturday night near a recycling firm in the 2100 block of Garrison Blvd. in West Baltimore, bleeding from at least one gunshot wound to the back of the head, said Agent Donny Moses, a police spokesman.

The man - whose identity was been withheld pending notification of family members - was pronounced dead at the scene, Moses said.

No arrest had been made and police said they knew of no motives for the shootings. Metro Crime Stoppers at 410-276-8888 is offering a reward of up to $2,000 for information leading to an arrest and indictment in either slaying.
