An East Baltimore man was shot to death early yesterday, and police had neither a suspect nor a motive for the city's 75th homicide this year. Police recorded 74 homicides in the city during the same period last year, a police spokesman said.
Eastern District police responded to a report of a man shot shortly after midnight in the 2600 block of E. Madison St. in the Madison-Eastend community. There they found Tavon Campbell, 20, of the 1100 block of Orleans St., bleeding from several wounds, said Officer Troy Harris. Harris said Campbell was taken by city Fire Department ambulance to Johns Hopkins Hospital, where he was pronounced dead a half-hour later.
Circuit Court records show Campbell was arrested in October and charged with possession of narcotics with intent to distribute. He was out on $15,000 bail before he was to appear for trial May 3. Metro Crime Stoppers, 410-276-8888, is offering a reward of up to $2,000 for information leading to an arrest and indictment.
