Police responded to the 1400 block of Stonewood Road for a report of a shooting at 11:18 p.m. Friday and found the man suffering from a gunshot wound to the head, according to Det. Jeremy Silbert, a Baltimore Police spokesman.

The victim, who has not been identified, was transported to Johns Hopkins Hospital where he died at 12:07 a.m. Saturday, police said.
