Two injured, one killed in Baltimore violence

Three separate violent acts left two men injured and one dead between Monday night and Tuesday morning in Baltimore, police said.

The killing occurred in the Harlem Park neighborhood of West Baltimore, at about 12:15 a.m. Police were called for a report of an unresponsive person in a home in the 600 block of N. Carey St., and found a 58-year-old man in a makeshift closet in a room where hypodermic needles and plastic bags were strewn around the floor, a spokesman said.

The man, tentatively identified as a 58-year-old, had been shot in the head, limbs and torso, and was taken to Maryland Shock Trauma Center where he later died. Police did not provide a motive; anyone with information was asked to call 410-396-2100.

Earlier, police investigated a drive-by shooting at the corner of Summerfield and Anntana avenues in the Frankford neighborhood in Northeast Baltimore. At 10:40 p.m., a 23-year-old man was walking with a friend near Frankford Avenue when a car carrying a group of people drove up beside him. Someone inside the car opened fire and the man was struck in the left calf muscle. Police said he is in good condition at an area hospital.

A third act of violence occurred Tuesday about 6 a.m., when a man was stabbed in the 1800 block of Wilkens Ave. in the Carrollton Ridge neighborhood of South Baltimore. He was taken to an area hospital, police said. His condition was not immediately known.
