June 03, 2008

Two men were shot last night, one of them fatally, while they sat on the front porch of a house in West Baltimore, police said.

No arrest had been made, and police knew of no motive.

The victims, both in their early 20s, were on the porch of a house in the 3100 block of Clifton Ave. about 8:30 p.m. when a man approached and opened fire with handgun, police said.

One man was shot in the chest and the other in the groin, police said. Both were taken by Fire Department ambulances to Maryland Shock Trauma Center, where the man with the chest wound died a short time later.

Police said the second victim underwent emergency surgery and was expected to survive.

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