A 21-year-old Baltimore man who was shot multiple times Saturday night was pronounced dead not long after the incident at Maryland Shock Trauma Center, police said yesterday.

The victim, Gary Watts, 21, whose last known address was in the 3300 block of St. Ambrose Ave. in Northwest Baltimore, was shot about 10 p.m. as he was walking in the 1300 block of N. Rosedale St. with two other men, said Agent Donny Moses, a police spokesman.

Witnesses told police that multiple shots were fired at Watts by unknown assailants from inside a dark-colored vehicle. The two men with Watts fled the scene, as did the assailants in the vehicle, Moses said.

The killing pushes the city's homicide total for the year to 210. Police said they have no suspects and know of no motive in the case.

Court records show that Watts received unsupervised probation in a theft case last year, and that he was charged as a juvenile in 2003 with a count each of possession of a firearm, handgun on his person and handgun in a vehicle.
