Five officers from Freddie Gray case face internal discipline

Man shot through his front door in Southwest Baltimore

Police were investigating two shootings that occurred Wednesday in Southwest and East Baltimore.

In the first incident, a 19-year-old man was shot multiple times in the 2100 block of Harford Road at about 9:20 a.m. The location is just north of the North Avenue District Court building, and the victim was found in front of a home. Police did not release any information about a motive, and though the victim's condition was unavailable, police list the incident as a non-fatal shooting.

Officers responded about 10:52 p.m. to the 400 block of Random Road in the city's Beechfield neighborhood for a report of gunfire and found a 37-year-old man inside a home suffering from a gunshot wound to his shoulder.

The victim told police three unknown suspects knocked on his door. When he answered one of them pulled a gun. He closed the door, heard gunshots, and realized he had been struck, police said.

The location is just south of Frederick Avenue, not far from the Baltimore County line, and about a block away from the 500 block of Coventry Rd., where 26-year-old Miguel Crosby was killed in the middle of the day Saturday.
