Four men fatally shot in separate incidents

The Baltimore Sun

In the deadliest Sunday this year, four men were fatally shot yesterday in apparently unrelated Baltimore homicides.

The latest slaying occurred about 9:30 p.m. in the 300 block of S. Payson St., where Southern District police responding to gunshots found an unidentified man bleeding from multiple wounds.

Police said the man died a short time later at Maryland Shock Trauma Center. Details of the shooting were not available.

Police gave this account of the day's other slayings:

In the 4600 block of Old Frederick Road, a woman flagged down a police officer about 5:30 p.m. and led him to a rear section of the condemned Upland Apartments, where a man was found shot in the head and upper body.

The 30-year-old victim, whose name was been withheld pending notification of family members, was pronounced dead at 6:26 p.m. at Shock Trauma, said Agent Donny Moses, a police spokesman.

About 4:30 p.m., Southeastern District officers responding to a reported shooting found a man bleeding from at least one gunshot wound to the upper body in the 6200 block of Elliott St. in the O'Donnell Heights community.

The victim, Azerwoine Walker, 30, of the nearby 6200 block of Ferore Way, died shortly after he arrived in the emergency room at Johns Hopkins Bayview Medical Center.

Early in the morning, a 35-year-old man was shot to death as he left a bar in Northeast Baltimore.

The victim, identified as Ronald Daniels, was shot several times in the head about 1:35 a.m. outside Cameo Lounge in the 4700 block of Harford Road.

The bar and surrounding blocks saw a spate of shootings in 2002 - including a triple shooting that August - that led some residents to call for the bar's closing.

Police said Daniels left the bar with two unidentified men just as the gunfire began. He was pronounced dead at the scene.

Moses described Daniels, of the 4300 block of Greenhill Ave. near Herring Run Park, as having "an extensive record" of drug and theft arrests. Daniels was on probation at the time of his death, Moses said.

Metro Crime Stoppers at 410-276-8888 is offering a reward of up to $2,000 for information leading to an arrest and indictment in any of the cases.
