A shooting in the 8000 block of Liberty Road last night left one man dead in a parking lot.

An officer was flagged down by a subject who directed him to the victim lying down in the parking lot of a carryout food business. The victim appeared to have suffered multiple gunshot wounds and was pronounced deceased at the scene by EMS.

Detectives from the Baltimore County Police Homicide Unit determined that just minutes before the officer drove into the area the victim was shot by the suspect after leaving the carryout restaurant around 11:56 p.m. The suspect fled prior to the officer's arrival.

The victim is identified as Artis Dewayne Holt (27) of the 1400 block of Clairidge Road, 21207.

Anyone with information regarding this incident is asked to contact Homicide detectives by calling 410-307-2020.
