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.
