Unidentified man fatally stabbed in Pigtown, city police say

Police say victim was stabbed during argument

February 15, 2011|By Justin Fenton, The Baltimore Sun

A man was fatally stabbed Tuesday afternoon after an argument turned deadly in Pigtown, police said.

The man, who was not identified, was found stabbed in the chest and back at about 4:45 p.m. in the 1100 block of W. Cross St., said Anthony Guglielmi, the department's chief spokesman.

The victim was taken to a local hospital, where he was pronounced dead a short time later. Guglielmi said police did not have a suspect.

The killing is the sixth in the Southern District this year, which had none at this time last year. Overall crime in the district is about the same, records show.

Residents of the street said the argument broke out in front of a corner store, and that the victim was found further down the block. The area is made up of many recently rehabilitated homes, though blue police links twinkle around corners. After police had cleared the scene, young men were again congregating in front of a nearby store as cars blaring loud music pulled up.
