Police investigating four shootings Friday night and Saturday

Detectives are investigating a double shooting Friday night in the Carroll-South Hilton neighborhood of West Baltimore and two shootings Saturday, police said.

Officers who were called to the unit block of Abington Avenue shortly after 10 p.m. Friday for a report of a shooting arrived to find “a possible crime scene, but no victims,” police said.

Moments later, police received a call that an area hospital had just received two walk-in shooting victims.

When officers arrived at the hospital, two men were being treated for gunshot wounds, police said. A 35-year-old man was wounded in the arm and the abdomen; a 29-year-old man was wounded in the torso.

Homicide detectives took control of the investigation “due to the seriousness of the injuries,” police said. The 29-year-old died Saturday.

Police asked anyone with information to call the Baltimore Police Department homicide section at 410-396-2100.

Police were also called to an area hospital at about 7 a.m. Saturday for another walk-in shooting victim. A 33-year-old man was shot in the arm, but the location of the crime was unknown and the victim was “uncooperative,” police said. Shooting detectives are investigating the case, and police encouraged anyone with information on the case to call the department’s citywide shooting section at 410-396-2221.

Later Saturday at about 4:49 p.m., police responded to a report of a traffic accident at the 1500 block of Holbrook Street in East Baltimore’s Oliver neighborhood. When officers arrived they found a man, who they estimated to be in his 20s, in his car with a gunshot wound. Medics transported the man to Johns Hopkins Hospital, where he was pronounced dead.

Homicide detectives are investigating the shooting, and police urged anyone with information to call the department’s homicide unit.

Police said those who wish to remain anonymous may call the Metro Crime Stoppers tip line at 1-866-7LOCKUP or text tips and video to 443-902-4824.
