Four people were shot -- one fatally -- last night, in three apparently unrelated incidents, a city police spokesman said. Because police gave The Sun incorrect information, it was incorrectly reported earlier that three people were killed.
Some of the victims' identities were not immediately available. Police said they knew of no motives or suspects.
The first of the shootings was reported at 9:23 p.m. at East North Avenue and North Wolfe Street, where an assailant shot a 24-year-old man in the chest and a girl in a leg. The man, Brandon Eveline, 23, of the 5200 block of Kenilworth Ave., died shortly before 10 p.m. at Johns Hopkins Hospital's trauma center. The girl was expected to survive, said spokesman Donny Moses.
At 9:47 p.m., Northern District police responding to a shooting behind Walter P. Carter Elementary School in the 800 block of E. 43rd St. found an unidentified man bleeding from at least one bullet wound to the head. He was taken to an area hospital where he was in was in "critical condition," said Troy Harris, a department spokesman.
The latest shooting was reported at 10:03 p.m. at West North Avenue and North Mount Street, where Western District police found a man who had been shot in the face. He was taken by ambulance to the Maryland Shock Trauma Center, where he was in "unstable and critical condition," said Officer Troy Harris.
