Two shot Saturday morning in southern Charles Village

Two people were shot shortly after 10 a.m. Saturday in the 100 block of E. 22nd St., police said.

A 36-year-old woman and a 38-year-old man were conscious and breathing when they were taken to the hospital and are in serious but stable condition as of 12:45 p.m., said Baltimore police spokesman Detective Kevin Brown. They are expected to survive.

The victims were in a burgundy SUV at the time of the incident, he said. The woman was shot multiple times, wounding her in the hip and leg, and the man had been shot in the arm, he said.

After the shooting, the victims drove about two blocks to East 23rd Street where they stopped and police were called, Brown said.

Marinieca Snowden, a Charles Village resident, was standing on the corner of North Charles and East 22nd streets when she heard gunshots, she said.

The SUV then sped across St. Paul Street, headed down 22nd Street and turned right onto North Charles, passing her, Snowden said.

"When she turned, she hollered, 'Call 911. I was shot. Call 911," Snowden said before she told police what she witnessed.

Snowden approached the vehicle after it stopped on East 23rd Street, she said. The woman had been driving and the driver's seat window was shattered.

The man was reclining in the back seat, she said. The woman gave Snowden her cellphone, asking her to dial 911 and several other people, she said.

No suspect or motive had been publicly identified. Anyone with information about the shootings should contact investigators at 410-396-2455, Brown said.

One-block sections of East 22nd and East 23rd streets were closed for about two hours. The SUV had been towed and both crime scenes were cleared by noon.
