Police identify man fatally stabbed on west side

City police have identified a man who was found fatally stabbed Thursday evening outside a vehicle in West Baltimore. Police identified the victim as Kevin Davis, 31, of the 1000 block of Leadenhall St. Officers responding to a report of a cutting about 5:15 p.m. found him outside a parked 1996 Ford Econoline van. Police said there were no witnesses and detectives knew of no motive. Davis appeared to have a long criminal record, including a first-degree murder charge from 2005 that was dropped by prosecutors. Davis was the 12th homicide victim of the year in Baltimore, which had recorded 19 at the same point last year.
