Man, 38, shot Monday in South Baltimore dies

Jamal Washington was the second man shot in South Baltimore Monday. He died Tuesday.

A 38-year-old Baltimore man died Tuesday, a day after being shot in South Baltimore, police said.

Jamal Washington, of the 4000 block of 8th Street, was found shot in the head around 6:10 p.m. on Monday, according to police. He was taken to Shock Trauma and was on life support until he died Wednesday, according to police.

Police said detectives have learned Washington was standing in the 3600 block of Hanover Street in the Brooklyn area with two other men when a suspect walking from the 100 block of Patapsco Avenue shot Washington. The male — wearing dark clothing — ran back through an alley from where he first appeared before the shooting.

Police did not report any other injuries in the shooting, but Washington's homicide was the second shooting in the neighborhood that day.

At about 11:30 a.m. Monday, police responded to the same block where a man was shot in the stomach. He was expected to survive the injury, police said at that time.
