The Baltimore Sun

A man was killed and another injured in separate shootings in Baltimore Friday night, police said.

At about 9:55 p.m., officers responded to a call in the 100 block of E. Jeffrey Street in Brooklyn of a person lying in the street.

Police said a 26-year-old man was found unresponsive, suffering from a gunshot wound to the chest.

He later was pronounced dead, police said.

Homicide detectives are investigating this murder and ask that anyone with information to call 410- 396-2100 or call Metro Crime Stoppers at 1-866-7LOCKUP.

Police also initally reported a man had been shot at about 11:45 p.m. at Liberty Heights and Gwynn Oak avenues in Howard Park, but later determined the man they initially thought had been shot in fact had not been.

The man told police he was standing in front of a chicken carry-out in the 4600 block of Liberty Heights Avenue when he heard a gun discharge. Police originally said the man had been shot in the elbow, but the victim injured his elbow when he fell while running after he heard shots fired.

Because of the discharging, officers are giving that area extra attention with hopes of thwarting any future plans of violence, police said.

Detectives ask that anyone with information to call 410-396-2221 or call Metro Crime Stoppers at 1-866-7LOCKUP.
