13-year-old in critical condition, one man killed, another injured in shootings Friday

A 13-year-old is in critical condition, one is dead and another injured in shootings Friday, police say.

Baltimore police are investigating two Friday night shootings that killed one person and injured two others, including a 13-year-old boy who remained in critical condition Saturday.

At 8:15 p.m. Friday, officers were called to the 2600 block of W. Fairmount Ave. in West Baltimore, where they found a man who had been shot in the chest lying in the middle of the street. He was taken to Maryland Shock Trauma Center, where he died a short time later.

Police did not release his name Saturday.

About 20 minutes later, officers were called to a double shooting at North and Rosedale avenues, where they found the 13-year-old and a 41-year-old man who had been shot.

Both were taken to Shock Trauma, where the man was treated for a gunshot wound to the leg.

Police said the shooter is described as a man in his late teens or early 20s, who was wearing a black puffy coat and black glasses, and carrying a black handgun.

Police also released information Saturday about a shooting that occurred at 1:30 a.m. Wednesday, when officers responded to the 2900 block of Clifton Park Terrace in North Baltimore.

Officers found a 32-year-old man who was suffering from a wound to the neck. He was listed in serious condition at an area hospital.

Doctors later determined the victim "was suffering from a through-and-through gunshot wound to the neck," police said.

Police also announced Saturday two arrests in a killing that occurred in Lauraville last month.

Police said Donald Symptom, 20, was fatally shot Feb. 1 after he got into an argument with two men in the area of Harford Road and Southern Avenue. The men followed Symptom to the 4700 block of Hampnett Ave. where they shot him, police said.

Dontaz Brandon, 18, of the 4500 block of Hampnett Ave. turned himself in on Feb. 21, and police arrested William Neely, 19, of the 3400 block of Echodale Ave. in Cherry Hill on Friday.

Both men are charged with first-degree murder and were being held at the Central Booking and Intake Center. Neither had an attorney listed in online court records.

Anyone with information about any of the shootings is asked to call Metro Crime Stoppers at 1-866-7LOCKUP.
