The man killed Monday just blocks from Pimlico Race Course was charged in the nearby killing of a teenage boy on the day after the Preakness last year.

Police said Brandon Lucas, 26, of the 600 block of Bonner Road was shot in the torso about 10:40 p.m. in the 3000 block of Spaulding Ave. in Central Park Heights. He was pronounced dead at a local hospital.

Almost one year ago, Lucas was arrested and charged with first- and second-degree murder in the fatal shooting of Cortez Brown, 17, on May 22, the day after last year’s Preakness.
