BALTIMORE — A 30-year-old man has died after being shot overnight Monday in Fells Point.
Just before 1 a.m., officers patrolling the area heard gunfire and found the victim laying in the 1700 block of Thames Street.
He later died at Johns Hopkins Hospital.
There is no word yet on any potential motive or suspect(s), but Baltimore City Councilman Zeke Cohen tweeted that the shooting stemmed from some sort of confrontation that quickly escalated.
"This act of senseless violence is as tragic as it is maddening. My heart breaks for the victim and his family," added Cohen. "It is absolutely infuriating that this conflict resulted in someone’s death."
WMAR-2 went to check out the scene early this morning, but all we found was some discarded crime scene tape in a trash can.
The incident follows a weekend that saw one homicide, five non-fatal shootings and 50 robberies.
Anyone with information on this latest murder should call investigators at 410-396-2100 or Metro Crime Stoppers at 1-866-7LOCKUP.
