BALTIMORE (AP) — Police say a Baltimore teenager was charged in the shooting death of a 26-year-old man last week.

The 17-year-old was charged with first-degree murder Thursday.

Baltimore police say an officer heard multiple gunshots on Nov. 7 near the Washington Village neighborhood.

Police found 26-year-old Sharif Stewart, of Greenbelt, suffering from a gunshot wound in the passenger seat of a car.

Stewart was taken to the hospital, where he later died.

Police say a witness helped identify the shooter.

The teen was arrested later that day, without incident. Additional information on the shooting wasn’t immediately released.
