Baltimore police have identified a man shot and killed in the Franklintown neighborhood Thursday as 23-year-old Antoine Ellis.

Officers responded to the 2000 block of Forest Park Ave. for reports of gunfire shortly after 2 p.m. and found Ellis suffering from gunshot wounds to the head, police said. He was taken to an area hospital, where he died of his wounds at 2:40 p.m.

Police believe Ellis was shot while he was standing near a bench on a baseball field and are continuing to investigate.

Online court records show that Ellis lived in the 2900 block of Brighton St., on the opposite side of Gwynns Falls/Leakin Park from where he was killed.
