A 24-year-old man was fatally shot in Northeast Baltimore early yesterday, police said. Michael Wilson of the 3100 block of Belair Road was found about 2:30 a.m. bleeding on a sidewalk in the Belair-Edison community and was pronounced dead a short time later at a hospital, said Agent Donny Moses, a police spokesman. Moses said an investigation indicates that Wilson was standing in the 3000 block of Belair Road when someone approached on foot from Lawnview Street and exchanged words with him. The other person then produced a handgun and shot Wilson multiple times in the torso. Wilson ran north on Belair before collapsing in the street, Moses said. Police had no suspects and knew of no motive in the shooting. Wilson was on probation stemming from a 2006 drug conviction.
