Lansdowne man dies after shooting near apartment


An 18-year-old Lansdowne man died early yesterday as the result of a shooting Friday night near his apartment building that appeared to be drug-related, Baltimore County police said.

Residents of a building in Lake in the Woods Apartments reported hearing gunshots coming from a parking lot at about 10 p.m., said Jay Miller, a police spokesman.

After the shots, residents saw a young man come around to the front of the building, holding his chest and saying he had been shot. When the police arrived, they found Julius Donte Evans of the 2900 block of Lakebrook Circle lying in the second-floor hallway of the building just outside his apartment, suffering from a gunshot wound to his chest.

Mr. Evans, who was clothed, was wrapped in a sheet and comforter. He was taken to the Maryland Shock Trauma Center, where he was pronounced dead at 12:30 a.m.

Detectives said Mr. Evans was found on top of eight small vials that were believed to contain crack cocaine residue. Police found similar vials in the parking lot where residents heard the shots.

Police had no suspects.
