City police have identified the East Baltimore victim, who died of gunshot wounds at Johns Hopkins Hospital Monday afternoon.
Anthony Keyser, 45, of the unit block of North Linwood Avenue near Patterson Park, was found in the back yard of his home at about 4 p.m. He died 30 minutes later.
Witnesses said the victim had been sitting on his back steps, when something prompted him to open the gate in the fence. Neighbors reported hearing gunshot sounds that seemed to be coming from the alley.
