Baltimore City recorded its first homicide this year when a man was fatally shot Sunday afternoon near Druid Hill Park, said a city police department spokesman.
The victim's name was withheld pending notification of family members, said Detective Donny Moses, the spokesman. No arrest had been made.
Shortly after 3 p.m., Northwestern District police and the crew of a city Fire Department ambulance responded to an alley in the 2300 block of Ocala Ave., about two blocks west of the park, for a report of a shooting, Moses said. There, police found the victim bleeding from multiple gunshot wounds to the body and was pronounced dead at the scene by medics.
