Three shootings in last 12 hours in Baltimore

Three men were wounded in three separate shootings in the last 12 hours in Baltimore — two in the leg and one in the arm.

The first of the shootings occurred at 8:18 p.m. at the intersection of E. Chase Street and N. Kenwood Avenue in east Baltimore, police said. A 21-year-old man was walking along Kenwood Avenue when he heard gunshots, police said. He began to run and got to the intersection, but was struck in the left leg twice. Medical crews responded to the scene and took him to an area hospital, where he is in stable condition.

The second shooting took place in the 2100 block of Haines St. in south Baltimore, police said. A 30-year-old man and his 7-year-old daughter were parked along the road in a car, when a black SUV pulled up beside them, police said. Words were exchanged, and the 30-year-old took off running — when someone from the SUV shot him in the leg, according to police. He is in stable condition at an area hospital. His daughter was unharmed in the shooting.

The final incident occurred sometime before 4 a.m., police said. At that time, a man walked into a hospital in central Baltimore with a gunshot wound to his arm. Detectives are investigating.
