Baltimore City police have identified a man who was fatally shot Friday night in the Carrollton Ridge-West Pratt neighborhood and are investigating the death of another man found Saturday morning in South Baltimore.

Richard Jones, 37, whose last known address was in the 800 block of Benninghaus Road in Govans, was found about 10:20 p.m. Friday lying in the street in the 1900 block of W. Pratt St. bleeding from several gunshot wounds, said Officer Troy Harris, a police spokesman. Jones was taken by a Fire Department ambulance to Maryland Shock Trauma Center, where he was pronounced dead a short time later. Detectives said no arrest had been made and that a motive was unknown.

Harris said homicide detectives are also investigating the death, possibly from beating, of a man in his mid-30s who was found Saturday morning in the 3300 block of Annapolis Road. Harris said the man had a lengthy criminal record and that his name was being withheld pending notification of family members.

Cecil man sought in slaying

State police have issued an arrest warrant for an Earleville man in connection with the shooting death of a Delaware man Saturday in North East in Cecil County.

Police have charged Raymond C. Lupfer, 30, of the first block of Kent Road with first- and second-degree murder, first- and second-degree assault and the use of a handgun in the commission of a crime, according to a statement released yesterday. Lupfer is believed to be armed.

Police responding to a call about 8:30 p.m. Saturday found Jeremy E. Yarbary, 20, of Dover, lying in the 100 block of Mahogany Drive, in a development in North East, according to the statement. Witness accounts indicate that Yarbary was fleeing after getting into an argument inside a residence on the block. He was shot several times and pronounced dead at the scene.

The incident is believed to be drug-related, police said, as two bags of suspected crack cocaine were found in the victim's hand.

Anyone with information is asked to call Maryland State Police at 410-996-7800.
