Police identify man killed in North Baltimore

April 09, 2010

Baltimore police have identified the man who died early Thursday after he was shot in the Woodbourne-McCabe neighborhood. A police spokesman said Sean Ramseur, 40, of the 500 block of Sheridan Ave. was found in the rear of the block with a wound to the back. An officer on patrol in the 5200 block of York Road heard gunshots about 11:30 p.m. and went to investigate, spokesman Kevin Hagan said. Ramseur was taken to Johns Hopkins Hospital, where he was pronounced dead at 12:15 a.m., Hagan said. Investigators believe the shooting took place in the 500 block of Glenwood Ave. because shell casings were found at Glenwood Avenue and York Road, Hagan said. In 2007, Ramseur was acquitted of first-degree murder and other charges in the stabbing of Gary Shipman, 28, on July 12, 2006. Ramseur was awaiting a May trial date on drug charges, according to court records.
