Three still hospitalized after shootings A pair of men and a woman shot Saturday.


Two men and a woman who were shot and seriously injured in separate, unrelated incidents Saturday night in Baltimore were still hospitalized today.

In two of the incidents, in which the victims were at home when shot, police said they knew of no motives and had no suspects.

In one incident, police said that Lisa C. Ragin, 19, was shot once in the chest about 10 p.m. Saturday as she tried to escape from a gun battle that had erupted on her street.

"She was sitting on her front steps," said Sgt. Roger Nolan of the homicide squad. "She tried to get out of the way, but she was struck by a bullet."

Ms. Ragin, of the 1500 block of E. Federal St., was taken to the Maryland Shock Trauma Center, where she was listed today in stable condition.

Police said they do not know who shot her.

In a second incident, police said Jerome Wells was shot once in the chest as he approached the back door of his house to check out a noise.

Mr. Wells, 38, of the 400 block of E. 21st St., was shot about 10:20 p.m. Saturday night.

He was listed in serious condition today at Johns Hopkins Hospital.

Again, police said they did not know who shot Mr. Wells or why.

In another incident, Darryl A. Jordan, 30, was standing in the 3200 block of W. Baltimore St. about 7 p.m. Saturday night when he was shot for no apparent reason, police said.

Mr. Jordan, of the first block of N. Abington Ave., was taken to University of Maryland Medical Center, where today he was listed in critical condition.

A suspect in the shooting was described as a male in his 40s wearing a brown jacket.
