Citywide shooting detectives were investigating the shooting of a 36-year-old man in West Baltimore late on Tuesday night.
Yellow police tape marked off the crime scene on the 1800 block of Bloomingdale Road at the edge of the Rosemont neighborhood at 11:30 p.m.
Two black shoes and three small, orange cones lay in front of a body shop at 1809 Bloomingdale Road, where several officers at the scene said the man had been shot.
The man was taken to a hospital, they said. Police said on Wednesday morning that police found the man suffering from multiple gunshot wounds to his torso about 11 p.m., and that his condition was not known.
The detectives examined the scene with flashlights and walked down an alley before crime scene investigators arrived at the scene around midnight.
As of late on Tuesday night, the shooting was not being investigated as a homicide, said the officers, who were not authorized to speak to the media.
David Gebre, a clerk at the Crown gas station across the street from the shooting, said he heard at least two gunshots and then saw police arrive shortly after. He said a customer who came to the gas station just after the shooting said the man who was shot appeared to be alive.
Gebre said police asked for the store’s surveillance video, which he couldn’t immediately access. A manager at the store will provide it to police on Wednesday, he said.
