A 32-year-old man died after he was shot in West Baltimore’s Allendale neighborhood Monday afternoon, police say.
The Baltimore Police Department wrote on social media that officers were called to the 800 block of W. Lexington St. at 3:57 p.m. for a report of a shooting. The incident reportedly happened in a rear alley on the block, police added.
The block in West Baltimore where a gunman opened fire on a Sunday afternoon cookout was quiet Monday morning, though bloodstains that remained on the sidewalk served as reminders of a chaotic crime scene the day before.
Upon arriving, officers found a man suffering from multiple gunshot wounds.
The man — who police identified Tuesday as 32-year-old William James of Stevens Forest Road in Columbia — was taken to the University of Maryland Shock Trauma, where he was pronounced dead, the department wrote.
Police are still investigating the shooting and ask anyone with information to call 410-396-2100 or leave a tip anonymously at 1-866-756-2587.
