Two teenagers shot each other inside a barbershop in Fells Point on Saturday and have been taken to a local hospital, where they’re awaiting charges, according to Baltimore Police.
Officers responding to a call shortly before noon arrived at the barbershop in the 1700 block of Fleet St. and found an 18-year-old man suffering from a gunshot wound to the groin and a 17-year-old male with a graze wound to the head, police said. Neither injury was considered life-threatening.
Detectives learned that the two had gotten into an argument before each drew a weapon and fired, according to Det. Donny Moses, a police spokesman. Neither has been publicly identified because they’re still classified as shooting victims, but that will change once charges are filed, Moses said.
Both are being treated for their injuries and are in police custody pending charges, according to Moses. Detectives from the Southeast District are investigating the incident.
Later in the day, police said, officers responding to a call to Johns Hopkins Hospital at about 3 p.m. found a man suffering from a gunshot wound to the head.
The man, who had recently been dropped off at the hospital, was pronounced dead a short time later, police said in a statement. The person who dropped him off had left the scene by the time officers arrived.
Homicide detectives are investigating the murder and are asking anyone with information to call (410) 396-2100 or make an anonymous call to Metro Crime Stoppers at 1-866-7lockup.
