Another man was killed in a shooting Sunday evening in the 2100 block of Sinclair Lane.

The killings ended a streak of six days without a killing in Baltimore following a call for a Ceasefire last weekend. An off-duty Washington, D.C., police officer was killed that Saturday, and a man was killed Monday morning near the Northwestern district police station, but the city did not see a homicide from that point until Sunday afternoon’s shooting death.

Anyone with information can call detectives at 410-396-2100 or Metro Crime Stoppers at 1-866-7LOCKUP. Tips also can be texted to 443-902-4824.
