On the night Baltimore police commemorated the 1,000 gun-related arrest of 2012, four people were wounded in separate shootings throughout the city.
The first came just before 8:30 p.m. on Wednesday when police said a man was shot in the leg in the 700 block of N. Augusta Avenue in the city's Edmondson Village neighborhood. At 12:19 a.m., police responded to the 1600 block of Moreland Avenue, where they found a 24-year-old man shot in a limb. He was treated and released from Maryland Shock Trauma Center.
A police officer on foot patrol heard five or six gunshots and radioed for assistance at 2 a.m. in the Druid Heights neighborhood. Police looked in the passenger seat of a gold Chevy Conversion van in the 500 block of Bloom Street and found a 22-year-old man bleeding from the upper body. He had been shot multiple times, police spokesman Anthony Guglielmi said. Police described his condition as stable on Thursday at Maryland Shock Trauma.
Nearly 40 minutes later, on the 1700 block of Lemmon Street in the Union Square neighborhood, police found a 23-year-old man suffering from multiple gunshot wounds to his upper body and arm. He told police he had been robbed, and he underwent surgery at Maryland Shock Trauma. Police also described his condition as stable.
