Police probing killing


Baltimore County police continue to seek a motive and suspect in yesterday's fatal shooting of a 19-year-old woman whose body was found in her Randallstown apartment.

Found unharmed inside the Scotts Level Apartments home in the 4600 block of Debilen Circle was the victim's 9-month-old son, said police spokesman E. Jay Miller.

The names of the victim and baby were withheld, pending notification of relatives. Mr. Miller said the infant was turned over to friends of the victim.

Mr. Miller said a male acquaintance of the woman found her lying on a bed at 6 p.m., shot at least once in the head.

The friend dialed 911, he said.

Mr. Miller said no signs of forced entry were found, but the apartment showed signs of light ransacking.

"We don't know if anything was taken from the apartment," he said.

The spokesman said the woman was known to be alive at 9 a.m. yesterday when she talked to a relative on the telephone.

Residents of the building told police they heard neither noises nor a gunshot from the woman's apartment.
