A man who was shot Saturday afternoon in Baltimore's Reservoir Hill neighborhood died a short time later from his injuries, police said.
It was the second fatal shooting in Baltimore in less than 24 hours.
Police responded to a report of a shooting about 2:05 p.m. and found the victim, who had not been identified Saturday evening, outside in the 800 block of Brooks Lane. He was taken to the University of Maryland Shock Trauma Center, where he died, police said.
Police said the victim had been approached by at least one person, who shot him at least once. Homicide detectives are investigating.
On Friday night, 22-year-old Brent Nickens was fatally shot in the city's Coppin Heights/Ash-Co-East neighborhood, police said.
Officers responded to the 2300 block of Westwood Avenue at 10:24 p.m. and found Nickens suffering from several gunshot wounds. He was taken to the shock trauma center, where he died at 11:06 p.m., police said.
Police think Nickens was outside in that block when another person approached him and shot him, they said.
The shooting Friday happened seven blocks west of a fatal stabbing at 4 a.m. that day. In that attack, 24-year-old Thomas Rawlings was found with multiple stab wounds and pronounced dead at a hospital.
