Man found shot dies later at Shock Trauma

Police were attempting to identify a young man shot early yesterday in the Brooklyn section of Baltimore who died a short time later at Maryland Shock Trauma Center, said a police spokesman.

About 2:15 a.m., a Southern District police officer was responding to a report of a shooting in the rear of the even side of the 3600 block of St. Margaret's St., near Patapsco Avenue, when she noticed a disturbance among several people who dispersed when she approached, said Agent Donny Moses, the spokesman.

Found on the ground, Moses said, was an unidentified man in his early 20s who was unconscious and bleeding from bullet wounds to the head and body. The victim was taken by ambulance to Shock Trauma, where he was pronounced dead less than an hour later.

Moses said yesterday's killing was the city's 72nd, compared with 64 the same time last year, and that no arrest had been made.

Metro Crime Stoppers at 410-276-8888 is offering a reward of up to $2,000 for information leading to an arrest and indictment.
