Six people were shot in four separate incidents on Monday, with the shootings reported in neighborhoods ranging from Mount Vernon to McElderry Park to Waverly, police said.
Late on Monday, a man and a woman were both shot in their legs in the Perkins Homes public housing community in Southeast Baltimore at about 10:30 p.m. About 10 minutes prior, a man was shot in the leg in the 600 block of East 37th Street in Waverly, police said. All the victims were expected to survive their injuries, and few other details were immediately available.
Earlier in the day, at about 3:30 a.m., two bouncers at the Casablanca Hookah Bar on the edge of Mount Vernon were shot after denying entry to three men who did not have identification, police said.
Both victims are expected to survive the shooting in the 800 block of Guilford Ave., according to police.
After the bouncers turned the men away, police said, one went to a nearby car and returned, opening fire and hitting both of them in the legs, police said. Detectives in the Central District are investigating.
In a separate incident, a man was shot in the 2700 block of Jefferson St. in McElderry Park about 1:30 a.m. Monday and was later found by police at a hospital, police said. His wounds were not considered life-threatening. Detectives in the Southeast District are investigating.
The shootings capped a violent weekend in Baltimore that included two separate triple-shootings, one of which injured a young boy in East Baltimore. A total of 13 people were shot between Friday evening and the early morning of Sunday, and one person was fatally stabbed.
Police have made an arrest in connection with the stabbing. No arrests have been made in connection with the shootings and police did not identify any of the shooting victims.
