An autopsy on the body of a man found yesterday morning lying next to railroad tracks near Carroll Park in South Baltimore indicated the man died as a result of being shot, said a city Police Department spokesman
Shortly before 9:30 a.m., police responded to the end of the 400 block of S. Stricker St., where they found the body of a man later identified as Robert Long, 36, whose last known address was the 1700 block of DeSoto Road, said Agent Donny Moses, the spokesman.
Moses said the autopsy showed that Long died of at least one bullet wound to the head. It was not known whether Long died where he was found, or whether he was shot elsewhere and his body dumped near the tracks.
