Police investigating two Sunday shootings

Baltimore police detectives are investigating two separate shootings, in North and Northeast Baltimore, that occurred Sunday morning, the second shortly before 8:30 a.m., according to a department spokesman.

That incident occurred in the 2800 block of Hillen Road, in the Coldstream-Homestead-Montebello neighborhood of Northeast Baltimore. The street runs along the Clifton Park Golf Course. Police said only that an adult male had been shot in the arm.

Earlier, at about 2 a.m. Sunday, police said they received a report of a 29-year-old man shot at Cold Spring Lane and York Road in Govans, in North Baltimore. But police said they believed the person had been shot in the 4700 block of Alhambra Ave., about three blocks south in Wilson Park.

Meanwhile, police have identified a 24-year-old man who was fatally shot Friday afternoon in Northwest Baltimore. Travis Spencer was found suffering from gunshot wounds in the 4400 block of Park Heights Ave. at about 3:15 p.m. Friday. Detectives believe the shooting actually occurred around the corner, in the 2700 block of W. Cold Spring Lane.

Spencer, who according to court records had lived in North Baltimore's Woodbourne Heights neighborhood, was transported to Sinai Hospital, where he was later pronounced dead.

According to postings from friends on Facebook, Spencer, who was known as "Trey," had played running back for a semi-pro football team called the Arbutus Big Red, which after his death posted an image of Spencer's uniform number, 9, over a red ribbon on the team's Facebook page.

Police didn't release a motive or suspects in the killing, but court records show Spencer was on probation for a 2008 armed robbery and burglary conviction that resulted in a 15-year suspended prison sentence.
