A 35-year-old man was shot and killed around the corner from the famed Corned Beef Row in Baltimore’s Jonestown neighborhood on Monday afternoon, police said.

Homicide detectives were called to the shooting around 1:25 p.m. in the 1100 block of Granby St., police said. Medics pronounced the man dead at the scene.

The man’s name and condition were not immediately released. Police shared no other information about the shooting, including any suspect description or possible motive, as of Monday afternoon.

Several officers stood at the end of the street, blocking from view the victim, who lay under a sheet amid crime scene markers near the Albemarle Community Center.

Police crime scene technicians took notes and snapped photographs of the crime scene, which closed about two blocks of the street. They focused much of their attention around a pair of cars, a gold Honda and a silver Infiniti. Another 10 or so crime scene markers littered the pavement nearby.

Onlookers stared at the scene from afar with a few idling closer. A few kids joked around, playing on a scooter. All of them said they didn’t know what happened.

About two hours later, officers were called to North Baltimore after a report of gunshots being heard inside a house.

When officers arrived in the 2900 block of Edgecombe Circle North they found a man suffering from gunshot wounds to his body. Police said he died at the scene.
