An unidentified man was found fatally shot early Monday in West Baltimore, according to police.

About 12:35 a.m., police discovered the victim lying face-down in the middle of the road in the 1500 block of W. Fayette St. and suffering from gunshot wounds to the upper torso.

He was taken to Maryland Shock Trauma Center and pronounced dead about 45 minutes later. Police had no suspects.

Earlier in the night, police responded to Union Memorial Hospital for a walk-in shooting victim. A 27-year-old man was shot about 8:30 p.m. in the 2000 block of E. 31st St., according to police.

The man told police he was walking when he was approached by another man, who pulled out a gun. The victim ran but was shot in the right leg and left foot, police said.

The victim called his fiancee, who took him to the hospital. Police have made no arrests in the incident.
