November 19, 2008|By Richard Irwin

A 14-year-old Brooklyn boy died last night at Maryland Shock Trauma Center shortly after he was shot by an unknown assailant near a Baltimore City fire station, police said.

Steven Graham of the 500 block of Annabel Ave. was at the intersection of Maude Avenue and 4th Street about 7:30 p.m. when he was shot, possibly by an occupant of a car that sped away, police said. Graham fell to the pavement nearly in front of Engine Company 35.

Graham's killing came about nine hours after an unidentified man was found shot on the first floor of a West Baltimore rowhouse.

Police responding to the report of a shooting in the 2000 block of N. Dukeland St. about 10:20 a.m. yesterday found a man lying on the first floor of a rowhouse bleeding from a gunshot wound to the abdomen. He was taken by ambulance to Bon Secours Hospital, where he died a short time later. Fingerprints were to be used to identify the victim.

As of yesterday, there were 199 homicides in the city, compared with 262 at the same time in 2007, police said.
