Bullets grazed two victims' foreheads in separate Baltimore shootings overnight, while another man was shot in the back and side.

City police are investigating the incidents to determine whether they are connected because of shooter descriptions that victims gave to police, Det. Vernon Davis said.

The first was reported before 10:30 a.m. Wednesday, when a 23-year-old man walked into Maryland Shock Trauma Center with bullet wounds to his left arm and left forehead, Davis said.

The victim told police that he had been shot between Fulton Avenue and Monroe Street in the Carrollton Ridge neighborhood. Police investigating found the crime scene at Fulton Avenue and Lombard Street and spoke to residents who had heard gunshots. Police do not have a suspect or motive in the shooting. The victim remained in the hospital Thursday with non-life threatening wounds.

About 10 minutes later, officers found another man with gunshot wounds to his lower back and side near the corner of South Smallwood and Eagle streets in the same neighborhood. The man, 18, told investigators he had been in an alley relieving himself when two masked suspects in all black approached him, pulled out a handgun and fired four shots. He was rushed to Maryland Shock Trauma Thursday with non-life threatening injuries, Davis said.

Just after midnight Thursday, police responded to the 700 block of N. Grantley St. in the Edgewood neighborhood where they found a 23-year-old man lying on a couch with bullet wounds to his left leg and left forehead. He told police he had been outside when two men wearing masks shot at him, forcing him to take cover in a nearby home. He was rushed to Maryland Shock Trauma and remained there Thursday with non life-threatening wounds.

Police have no suspects or motives in the shootings, Davis said.
