A teenager was fatally shot in the Reservoir Hill neighborhood early Thursday morning, according to Baltimore police.

Baltimore Police spokesman Anthony Guglielmi was identified the teen Thursday morning as Renardo Broom, 16.

An officer responded to a call for a shooting at 12:48 a.m. in the 700 block of W. North Avenue, police said. He found the victim lying in the courtyard with a gunshot wound.

A medical crew took him to Maryland Shock Trauma Center, where he was pronounced dead at 1:28 a.m.

Investigators have no suspects or motive at this time, police say.

There have been three other teenage homicide victims so far this year. All were shot and were 16 years old.

Officials have also released the identity of a man who was shot in the 1500 block of Carswell Street Tuesday night. Phillip Bundy, who also lived in that block in the Coldstream-Homestead-Montebello neighborhood, was 28.
