A 16-year-old Reservoir Hill youth was shot to death last night in the 4700 block of Delaware Ave. in Pimlico, city police said.
Northwestern District officers responding to a report of a shooting at 11:45 p.m. found the body of Michael Hope, of the 900 block of Chauncey Ave., in the street.
Police said the youth had been talking on an outside telephone when someone approached and shot him in the head and stomach.
The youth was pronounced dead at the scene.
A homicide detective said the area where the shooting took place has a history of drug trafficking but that there was no evidence the killing was drug-related.
