Two shootings occurred about a mile apart Friday afternoon in East Baltimore, police said, injuring two men and killing a third.

A 30-year-old man was shot several times at about 3 p.m. in the 1800 block of N. Milton Ave., in the Broadway East neighborhood, according to a statement Saturday from Det. Kevin Brown, a police spokesman. The victim was taken to a nearby hospital.

Four hours later, a 17-year-old was shot in the legs and a 26-year-old was shot in the chest in the 1600 block of E. Federal St., Brown said. They were both taken to a local hospital where the older man died.

Brown said that as of Saturday afternoon no suspect or motive had been identified in either case.
