City police have identified the man who was fatally shot Monday night in a house in Reservoir Hill and reported yesterday that a woman who also was shot remained in critical condition at Maryland Shock Trauma Center. No arrest had been made.
The woman, whose name was not released because she is considered a witness to a homicide, was unable to be interviewed by detectives, said Police Department spokesman Donny Moses. He said Central District police responding to a report of shots fired in a house in the 800 block of Chauncy Ave. shortly before 11 p.m. were met at the front door by a young woman who had been shot it in upper body; she then collapsed on the floor. When police asked whether there was anyone else in the house, the woman said a man had been shot and was in the kitchen, Moses said. There, police found Antonio Coby, 28, lying on the kitchen floor and bleeding from a bullet wound to the head. Moses said both victims were taken by ambulance to Shock Trauma, where Coby, of the 1000 block of N. Monroe St., died at 11:27 p.m. Moses said detectives are expected to interview the woman if her condition improves.
