Man shot in West Baltimore home invasion dies

November 16, 2009

A 45-year-old man in a wheelchair, shot along with his mother during a home invasion Saturday afternoon in West Baltimore, has died, according to city police. Anthony Swann, 45, of the 800 block of Lemmon St., was shot several times about 2:20 p.m. and transported to Maryland Shock Trauma Center. Swann's 62-year-old mother, whom police have not identified because she was a witness, remains at the hospital in stable condition with non-life-threatening injuries. The mother told police that she left the door slightly open as she was bringing in groceries when a man wearing a ski mask entered and opened fire on her son, according to spokesman Donny Moses. The suspect then turned the gun on the woman, who was shot in the face and in her body, Moses said. The suspect fled the house. The woman was able to stumble into the street and scream for help, police said. Detectives have no suspects and no motives.
