Seven shot, two fatally, in Baltimore over weekend

Seven men were shot, two fatally, in five separate incidents in Baltimore over the weekend, police said.

Five of the men were shot in three separate shootings Saturday. One man was fatally shot and another injured in Sunday.

A 32-year-old man was shot to death in the 1400 block of Mount St. around 2:15 p.m. Sunday, police said. They did not have more details.

Around 5:30 p.m. Sunday, a 21-year-old man was shot in the 3200 block of Garrison Blvd. in the Forest Park neighborhood.

Two of the shootings, which each involved two victims, occurred just seven minutes and about 2½ miles apart in Northwest Baltimore on Saturday evening, the first leaving a 31-year-old man dead, police said.

About 5:30 p.m., officers responded to the 2700 block of Boarman Ave. in the city’s Central Park Heights neighborhood and found evidence of a shooting but no victims, police said. Witnesses said the victims had left in a truck.

Shortly after, two 31-year-old men walked into an area hospital with gunshot wounds, police said. One, wounded in the body, was pronounced dead soon after, police said. The other was wounded in both legs.

The man who died was not immediately identified, pending the notification of his family, police said. He was the 248th homicide victim in Baltimore in 2017.

Police do not identify surviving victims of shootings.

About 5:40 p.m., officers were called for another shooting and determined it had occurred in the 3400 block of Piedmont Ave., in the city’s Hanlon-Longwood neighborhood.

Two men subsequently arrived separately at an area hospital seeking treatment for gunshot wounds, police said.

One, age 25, was shot in the leg, while the other, 34, was shot in the chin, police said.

Earlier, an 18-year-old man was shot and wounded in Northeast Baltimore, police said.

About 4:52 p.m., officers responded to the 4700 block of Shamrock Ave., in the city’s Parkside neighborhood, and found the man with gunshot wounds. He was transported to a local hospital.
