April 09, 2013|By Justin Fenton, The Baltimore Sun

City police say homicide detectives are investigating the death of a man found inside a home in Northwest Baltimore, and an assault in Curtis Bay that left a 19-year-old critically injured. 

There were few details about the homicide case. Police said they were called to a home in the 4100 block of Groveland Ave. at about 8:10 p.m. for a report of a person not breathing, and found a man with "trauma to the body." He was pronounced dead at the scene, and his identity and cause of death were pending, police said. 

At 1:45 a.m. Tuesday, police said a 19-year-old man was sitting in front of a home in the 1600 block of Cypress St. with two other people when a man exchanged words with the group. A fight ensued, and the victim was struck over the head with a beer bottle, causing him to fall and strike his head on the ground. 

Police said the victim was taken to Johns Hopkins Bayview Hospital, but was later transferred to Maryland Shock Trauma center due to a "grim prognosis." Homicide detectives were investigating due to the severity of his injuries. He was not identified by police.
