Baltimore police investigating two shootings Saturday night

Baltimore police were investigating two shootings that occurred about a half-hour apart in different areas of the city Saturday night.

Police were notified of the first shooting around 8 p.m. when a 28-year-old man showed up at a hospital suffering from gunshot wounds; police did not confirm which hospital, but at least eight police vehicles could be seen near the emergency room entrance at Sinai Hospital in North Baltimore.

Investigators later determined the shooting occurred in the parking lot of a gas station in the 4200 block of Wabash Ave. Multiple evidence markers dotted the area around the gas pump closest to the road.

Police said detectives from the unit that investigates nonfatal shootings were handling the case, though the victim’s condition was not immediately known.

A running vehicle with apparent bullet holes in the windshield was located not far away from the scene, in an alley in the 4000 block of Oakford Ave., but it was not immediately clear whether it was connected to the Wabash Avenue shooting scene. A police patrol car stood guard by the car, which had the engine running and doors open, and had driven up onto a pile of debris.

Police also were investigating a shooting that occurred around 8:30 p.m. in the 600 block of N. Glover St., on the city’s east side.

That victim, a 34-year-old man, also walked into an area hospital, and police said the nonfatal shootings unit was investigating that case. No other information was immediately available.
