BALTIMORE - (MINS) Baltimore Police responded Friday night, to the 3400 block of W. Caton Ave., in the St. Joseph Community of West Baltimore, for reports of a man shot in the chest. According to the departments Twitter account, the man died a short while later at an area hospital.

Although not confirmed by officials, the victim is said to be Keith Glascoe, 50.

A person familiar with Glascoe described the incident as a family dispute gone bad. The individual said Glascoe was well known in the area, often performing errands and odd jobs for elderly neighbors. From taking out the trash, and other housework, to making runs to the store, Glascoe was described as someone whose presence will be greatly missed by not just immediate family, but the greater community, as he was relied upon by many.

While on scene The Baltimore Spectator observed investigators going in and out of a single family home on the corner, as officers stood guard immediately outside. Eventually investigators left the house with evidence, including a long object wrapped in brown paper.

As sounds of sorrow from a woman crying inconsolably could be heard coming from inside the house, a small group of possible family and or friends stood outside on the sidewalk while a detective spoke to them taking notes.

The victim appears to have been shot inside the residence. Neighbors said they didn't hear gunshots. At the scene, sounds of a continuous barrage of individual pre-Independence Day fireworks filled the air. It is conceivable that the sound of a gunshot could have easily been missed in between firecracker blasts.

A week prior, on 27 June, there was another homicide only a block away. Like this incident, a man was shot in the chest on the 3300 block of W. Caton Ave. .

Police have not named the suspect nor given a motive and state the homicide is still considered an ongoing investigation.

The incident was the second fatal shooting in two days,including the gunning down Thursday, of Nate Wheeler Jr., while he worked at a West Baltimore construction site on N. Fulton Ave. near Druid Hill Park. 

Both incidents are notable for persons of interest being taken into custody almost immediately. A highly unusual occurrence in a city where more than half of all murders are never solved.

At both crime scenes, police did not send a spokesperson out to provide details to media reporting from the scene. Also as of Saturday morning, identification of the deceased and suspects involved still haven't been officially released.
