Baltimore police said they found a man shot to death in the Penn North neighborhood Saturday night, snapping a streak of more than a week without a homicide in the city.

Medics pronounced him dead at the scene. Police did not immediately provide the man’s age or additional details about the killing.

Baltimore has seen 145 homicides so far this year. Before Saturday night’s deadly shooting, the last homicide occurred the night of June 4. There were several nonfatal shootings during that span, but such a lull in fatal violence is rare.
