A man who was shot about 6 p.m. Wednesday in the 4600 block of Laurel Avenue in Northwest Baltimore's Cylburn neighborhood later died at a hospital.
The shooting took place blocks from where a man holding a gun was shot by police Tuesday night and also close to where another man was shot in the face and injured Monday night. This week, police spokesman Anthony Guglielmi said officials had pinpointed the area where the man was shot as a concern because of recent violence.
In another incident Wednesday, a 15-year-old boy was shot in the foot about 8 p.m. near the corner of Gay and Fayette streets, very close to Baltimore police headquarters downtown.
Police said they are investigating whether it was a botched robbery attempt and are searching for a suspect who ran from the scene.
The shooting was not the only one Wednesday near a law enforcement building. About 1:15 p.m., a man was shot in the arm in an apparent robbery attempt outside a city parole and probation office on Guilford Avenue.
