Baltimore police are asking for the public's help in identifying a man they say fatally shot another man in the city's Reservoir Hill neighborhood on July 5.

Police say the suspect, of whom they released a composite sketch Thursday, is a black man likely between the ages of 18 and 22. He is about 5 feet 8 inches tall and 140 pounds, with a thin build, police said.

Police say he fatally shot Lance Johnson, 40, about 1:25 a.m. in the 2300 block of North Eutaw Place.

Police identified Johnson as being transgender, but said there was no indication that the shooting was a hate crime.

Johnson was pronounced dead at the scene.

Anyone with information on the shooting or the suspect is asked to call the city's homicide section at 410-396-2100, or 911.
