A 35-year-old man fatally shot in East Baltimore this weekend was identified by police on Monday as Antonio Washington, an off-duty security officer.
Washington was found with a gunshot wound to his head about 2:15 a.m. Sunday morning in the 600 block of N. Duncan Street, in the city's CARE neighborhood. He died at a local hospital.
T.J. Smith, a police spokesman, confirmed Washington worked as a security officer but said he was not working at the time of the shooting.
Smith said the incident "apparently stems from a dispute that occurred inside of" a local venue, and had "nothing to do with" Washington's role as a security officer.
Greg Shipley, a spokesman for Maryland State Police, said Washington was licensed by the state police as a security guard with the All Secure Security Company of Baltimore, and registered as a private detective with Centurion Protection and Investigations.
Baltimore Police had originally given a different age for Washington, and incorrectly identified him as a special police officer with arrest powers. He did not have such powers.
His family could not be immediately reached for comment.
