ShootingsHomicide

City police are investing a third weekend homicide that occurred late Sunday in the Upton neighborhood near the State Center office complex.

Police were called to the corner of West Preston and McCulloh streets at 11:30 p.m. for a shooting and found a man lying unresponsive nearby in the 400 block of Oxford Court, in the McCulloh Homes development.

The victim, identified as 21-year-old Tyrice Forney, was taken to Maryland Shock Trauma Center, where he was pronounced dead just after midnight, police said. Forney's last known address was in the 400 block of S. Parrish St., and police said they did not know of a motive in the shooting.

The man's death is the third homicide to occur this past weekend; a 13-year-old girl was found dead in the Darley Park neighborhood in Northeast Baltimore after her family said she did not return home from rollerskating. A second man was killed during a fight in front of a 7-Eleven store, also in Northeast Baltimore.

Police are also investigating several non-fatal shootings from the weekend:

Officers reported a 21-year-old man with a gunshot wound to the buttocks was found in the 100 block of S. East Ave. in the Patterson Park neighborhood at about 9:30 p.m. Saturday. Early Sunday, a 37-year-old man was found shot multiple times in the chest and right arm in the 600 block of N. Potomac St. in Southeast Baltimore, police said.

Police are also investigating a shooting that occurred near the 1000 block of N. Gay St. in East Baltimore, where a 45-year-old man was shot in the thigh.
