Three men were shot to death in apparently unrelated incidents over the past two days in different parts of Baltimore, and police yesterday identified the victim of an earlier homicide.

The killings pushed the city's homicide total this year to 56, compared with 51 for the same period last year.

The latest killing occurred about 11 a.m. yesterday, police said, when two men were arguing in the 1600 block of Cliftview Ave. in East Baltimore and a third man stepped in and shot one of them.

Agent Donny Moses, a police spokesman, said that one man was quickly arrested by police and detectives were seeking a second suspect. The names of the victim and the suspect were not immediately available.

About 2 a.m. yesterday, relatives of Tyrone Jackson Jr., 19, found him seriously wounded on his front porch in the 5600 block of Brook Ave. in Northeast Baltimore. He was taken to Johns Hopkins Hospital, where he was pronounced dead, police said.

Jackson was free on $10,000 bail, awaiting trial with three co-defendants on multiple drug-dealing charges, court records show.

On Monday, Western District police officers responded to the 2700 block of Harlem Ave. for reports of a shooting about 10 p.m. Officers discovered a 48-year-old man lying on a sidewalk near his house, suffering from multiple gunshot wounds.

The victim -- identified by police as Mark Robinson -- was taken to Maryland Shock Trauma Center, where he was pronounced dead at 10:47 p.m.

Police also yesterday identified a man who was fatally shot Friday morning and died later that day. Anthony Bryan, 37, was found with a gunshot to the head about 8:40 a.m. in the 3000 block of Rosedale Court in Southwest Baltimore.
