Southwestern District officers responding to gunfire in the 500 block of S. Smallwood St. shortly after 10:30 p.m. found the victims ? a man and a boy in his late teens?lying on the ground, said Agent Donny Moses, a Police Department spokesman.

The victims' names were not available.

Moses said the man had been shot in the head and the boy in the side, and that both were taken by Fire Department ambulances to Maryland Shock Trauma Center,where theman died shortly after arrival.

The boywas in critical condition, he said.

Moses said two men were arrested at the scene for interfering with police investigating the double shooting and were charged with disorderly conduct. "They had nothing to dowith the shootings," Moses said.

The death brought to 107 the number of homicides in the city this year ? at least 11 more than at the same time in 2006, Moses said.
