Baltimore police identified yesterday two recent homicide victims, including one from the weekend.

Derrick Phillips, 42, was shot in the head about 1 a.m. Saturday in the 1800 block of N. Regester St. in East Baltimore, police spokeswoman Nicole Monroe said. Phillips, whose last known address was in the 3400 block of Alto Road in Woodlawn, was pronounced dead at the scene by Fire Department medics.

Gregory Boston, 48, of the 2500 block of Oswego Ave. was shot Thursday near home, in the 2700 block of Oswego Ave. in the Greenspring community, police said. He was found in the street with at least one gunshot wound and was pronounced dead at Sinai Hospital.

Both Phillips and Boston had criminal records, and Boston was on probation after a conviction last year on drug charges. Police said they knew of no motive in either case and had no suspects.

The victim of another homicide over the weekend has not been identified by police. About midnight Saturday, Northern District police responded to a report of a man shot in the 2400 block of Loyola Southway in the Greenspring community and found a man bleeding from a gunshot wound to the head. The victim was pronounced dead at the scene.
