City police continued to seek the person who fatally shot an 18-year-old man Saturday night near the victim's Sandtown-Winchester home in West Baltimore.

Mark Henson of the 1500 block of N. Carey St. was shot in the head and upper body about 9 p.m. Saturday, police spokesman Troy Harris said yesterday.

"We found him lying in the street already being tended to my medics," Harris said. The victim was pronounced dead at the scene. Metro Crime Stoppers at 410-276-8888 is offering a reward of up to $2,000 for information leading to an arrest and an indictment in the slaying.

In a separate incident Saturday, police were looking for two men who entered a house on the 300 block of S. Macon St., in the city's Southeastern District, and brandished knives, Harris said. They got into an argument with a 33-year-old man in the house, who then "went into the kitchen to grab a knife," he said.

Police officers found the occupant of the home on the front steps with a stab wound to the neck. Police did not release his name or his condition.
