An unidentified man was fatally shot early yesterday in West Baltimore in the latest homicide reported by city police.

The victim was found about 2:30 a.m. with multiple wounds in the 1800 block of W. Baltimore St. and was pronounced dead at Maryland Shock Trauma Center, said Officer Troy Harris, a police spokesman.

Police also released yesterday the identity of a vendor who was shot to death Saturday night. Dwight Evans, 32, of no fixed address, was shot in his shop in the rear of Evans Temple Memorial Church of God in the 2400 block of E. Madison St. about 7 p.m. Saturday, Harris said.

Evans, who sold merchandise ranging from jackets to snacks, was shot multiple times and died a short time later at Johns Hopkins Hospital, police said. It was not known whether Evans was robbed.

Both shootings remained under investigation by homicide detectives and no arrests had been made, Harris said.
