Police said a man was fatally stabbed Saturday morning in a domestic dispute, a killing that occurred the morning after two unrelated overnight shootings that injured five.
Officers were called to the 700 block of N. Rose St., in East Baltimore, at about 8:40 a.m. and found a man who had been stabbed in the torso during a dispute, police said.
Sgt. Anthony Smith, a police spokesman, said detectives were consulting with prosecutors and would not say whether the stabbing occurred in self-defense, but a police official said a female suspect who was taken into custody had been released pending further investigation. The victim's name and age were not released.
On Friday night, police said four people were wounded in a drive-by shooting in Druid Heights.
