Man shot on the street dies later at hospital

A man was shot last night on a street in the Ellwood Park-Monument neighborhood in East Baltimore and died later at a hospital. No arrest had been made and the man's identity was being withheld pending notification of family members, said a police spokesman. Agent Donny Moses, the spokesman, said Southeastern District police responding to a 911 call about 8:30 p.m. of a shooting in the 3000 block of Pulaski Highway, between Potomac Street and Ellwood Avenue, found the man lying on the ground and bleeding from bullet wounds to the head and upper body. Moses said the man was taken by a city Fire Department ambulance to the emergency room at Johns Hopkins Hospital, where he died about an hour later. The man's death brought to 223 the number of homicides in the city this year as of yesterday, compared with 271 at the same time last year, the spokesman said. Metro Crime Stoppers at 410-276-8888 is offering a reward of up to $2,000 for information leading to an arrest and an indictment in the slaying.
