A man found shot late Monday in West Baltimore died shortly afterward of his injuries, city police said.

An officer was flagged down by a woman about 11:05 p.m. in the 1800 block of Bentalou St., just south of West North Avenue, according to police. The officer found the male victim seated on a porch, suffering from gunshot wounds, police said.

He was taken to Maryland Shock Trauma Center, where he died at 12:08 a.m., according to police.

Investigators have also identified victims of three recent homicides, said Detective Jeremy Silbert, a police spokesman.

Isaac Stevens was fatally shot about 1:45 a.m. Sunday in the 4700 block of Sayer Ave. in West Baltimore, he said. In a separate incident early Sunday, Damon Griffin, 25, and Steven White, 29, were found fatally shot in a vehicle about 2:15 a.m. in the 4200 block of Rokeby Road, near Leakin Park in West Baltimore, according to Silbert.

Police had no suspects and had yet to determine any motives in the killings, he said.
