North Baltimore homicide victim identified

Police identified a man found fatally shot in North Baltimore on Friday morning as Tavon Antonio Young, 24.

Young had been found in an alley in the 300 block of Ilchester Ave. in the Harwood neighborhood shortly before 7 a.m. on Friday, police said. Police had received a 911 call about someone lying in the alley, but no reports of gunfire. However, police said they believe Young was killed in the alley, located just west of Greenmount Avenue, because they found shell casings near his body.
