Three men were shot in separate incidents in Baltimore — one fatally — in the early hours of Sunday morning, police said.
The final shooting, at about 2:30 a.m., was fatal. Officers found Terrence Joyner, 42, with multiple chest wounds in the 4500 block of Marble Hall Road, a block from his Northeast Baltimore home. Agent Donny Moses, a Baltimore police spokesman, said Joyner was shot during a fight in front of a 7-Eleven store. Joyner died just after 3 a.m. at Johns Hopkins Hospital, Moses said.
The first shooting happened at about 12:20 a.m. near the 1000 block of N. Gay St. in East Baltimore, Moses said. The 45-year-old victim, hit multiple times in the left thigh, was taken to Johns Hopkins with injuries that police believe are not life-threatening. The victim told officers that a group of men tried to rob him, found nothing worth taking and then shot him after ordering him to walk away, Moses said.
Half an hour later, a 37-year-old man who had been shot multiple times in the chest and right arm approached officers and said he had been attacked in the 600 block of N. Potomac St. in Southeast Baltimore. He told officers that he also had been robbed by a group of men — they took his cell phone — before he was shot. He is in serious but stable condition at Johns Hopkins Hospital, Moses said.
Moses said detectives do not believe the incidents are related.
