Homicide detectives were investigating an afternoon shooting that occurred Friday in West Baltimore in a residential area between Mondawmin Mall and Druid Hill Park.
The shooting occurred at about 3:45 p.m. in the 3500 block of Woodbrook Ave. The victim’s condition was not immediately known but homicide detectives were summoned to the scene due to the severity of his injuries.
Last week, a 47-year-old man was fatally shot in the same neighborhood, a few blocks south in the 2800 block of Parkwood Ave. The Safe Streets anti-violence program had held a peace rally two days later — and was shut down temporarily by the Health Department on Tuesday.
Anyone with information was asked to call homicide detectives at 410-396-2100.
