City police were investigating a double-shooting in West Baltimore Monday night that killed a 29-year-old man.
Officers found Donte Collins suffering from multiple gunshot wounds at about 8:30 p.m. in the 1500 block of Rosedale
St., in the Rosemont neighborhood, and paramedics transported him to Maryland Shock Trauma Center where he was pronounced dead about an hour later.
Around the same time, police were informed of another shooting victim who had been dropped at St. Agnes Hospital for treatment for multiple gunshot wounds to his lower body. Police said the second victim, identified only as a 33 year old, "refused to cooperate with investigators" and was transferred to Shock Trauma due to "extensive injuries."
Police believe the incidents are linked, but did not have a motive or release any suspect descriptions. Court records show Collins, of the 3100 block of Baker St., has a history of drug convictions, the most recent in January when he was sentenced to 12 years in prison with all but about three months suspended.
The killing was the 193rd of the year in Baltimore.
Anyone with information was asked to call homicide detectives at 410-396-2100.
