City police identified a man who was fatally shot Sunday afternoon in East Baltimore as a 23-year-old area resident.

Two men were sitting in a white Audi parked in the 1600 block of Cliftview Ave., in the Darley Park neighborhood, when they were approached by a male who shot at the victims through a driver's side window, police said.

Officers were called to the scene at about 3:30 p.m. and found Mark Saunders, who court records say lived in the 2800 block of Pelham Ave., suffering from multiple gunshot wounds. He was taken to Johns Hopkins Hospital, where he was pronounced dead at 4:20 p.m.

A second man was also struck and was taken to a local hospital with non-life-threatening injuries. Police said they have no suspects and do not know of a motive. Attempts to reach the family of Saunders, who was on probation for a drug conviction, were unsuccessful.
