He was taken to a hospital, where he died several hours later.

“He was involved in a crash with another vehicle,” Detective Jeremy Silbert, a police spokesman, said in an email. “The victim drove away from that scene and the vehicle he struck began to follow him. … Investigators believe several occupants of the second vehicle began to assault the victim using bricks and other objects. These individuals then left the scene before police arrived.”

No further details, such as suspect description or the cause or location of the initial crash, were released.

Homicide detectives are investigating, and any witnesses with information are asked to call 410-396-2100.
