A man initially thought to be sleeping in his car in Parkville Tuesday evening turned out to have been shot several times and was pronounced dead on the scene, according to Baltimore County police.

The victim, identified as Miguiel Anthony Bailey, 22, was found about 6 p.m. in a dark Chevrolet Impala parked in the first block of Mopec Circle, off of Taylor Avenue and east of Belair Road. He lived in the 4700 block of Dark Start Way in Owings Mills.

Police said a bystander called 911 and said it appeared someone had fallen asleep or was unconscious in the car. Officers and paramedics responded and said Bailey had been shot several times. He was pronounced dead on the scene.

A statement from police said detectives found blood in the car and that its motor was running. Police said they do not know if Bailey was shot on Mopec Circle or somewhere else. A phone number listed to Bailey's house has been disconnected.

Anyone with information is urged to call Baltimore County Police at 410-307-2020.
