18-year-old found dead in Lansdowne; Baltimore County police investigating as homicide

Baltimore County police are investigating a homicide after officers found an 18-year-old man dead in an alley in Lansdowne on Sunday night.

Police on Monday identified the victim as Sye’he Rashaad Brunson, 18, of the Yale Heights neighborhood in Baltimore. Police said Brunson was found with what “appears” to be a gunshot wound to the upper body. Police spokeswoman Officer Jennifer Peach said it was too soon to say whether Brunson’s shooting was a targeted incident.

“Usually there is a call for a shooting, or someone heard a gunshot, something like that,” Peach said. “But there wasn’t anything that preceded this.”

Cpl. George Erhardt said an officer discovered the man in the 700 block of 5th Ave. after police were called to the area at about 8 p.m. Sunday for a report of an “unknown problem.”

Baltimore County police wrote in a news release that “a passerby found a male victim lying unconscious with trauma to the upper body.”

The man was pronounced dead at the scene, police wrote.

The department is asking for anyone “who may have seen or heard anything out of the ordinary around or shortly before 8 p.m.” to call 410-307-2020.
