Two men shot and wounded in their cars overnight Sunday in Dundalk, Baltimore

Two men were shot overnight in Baltimore. Also Monday, police identified eight recent homicide victims.

A man was sitting in his car in Dundalk Sunday night when he was shot in his head and hand, police said. About three hours later, another driver was shot in his shoulder while sitting at a red light in West Baltimore.

The first man was hospitalized in serious condition; the second suffered a wound that was not life-threatening, police said.

The first victim, a 27-year-old man, was in his car shortly after 9:30 p.m. near a bar in the 6500 block of Riverview Ave., when a gunman approached, police said. The man was shot and drove off, crashing a few blocks away at Broening Highway.

Charles Sommers, co-owner of the Airport Bar & Grill, said he was cleaning and the bar was closed when he heard the gunfire outside.

"I heard the voices outside and as I closed and the locked the door the gunshots went off," he said.

Around 1 a.m. in West Baltimore, a 23-year-old man was stopped in his car at Franklin Street and Warwick Avenue when a gunman approached and opened fire. The man was shot in his shoulder and he drove less than a block to a gas station, where police were called.
