A man was shot multiple times last night at a West Baltimore intersection and died a short time later at a hospital, police said.

About 10:30 p.m., Western District police responding to a report of a man shot at Clifton Avenue and North Monroe Street found the man lying in the street suffering from gunshot wounds to the back of the head and a leg, police said.

The victim, whose name was withheld pending notification of family members, was taken by ambulance to a hospital, where he died.
