Two men are injured in drive-by shooting BALTIMORE CITY


Two men were wounded yesterday in a drive-by shooting in which a gunman in a gray Chevette opened fire on people standing on an East Baltimore corner, police said.

Police said the Chevette drove through the 1600 block of E. Eager St. about 3 p.m. When it neared the intersection with Bond Street, someone in the car fired a handgun out of the window.

Injured were John Gray, 23, of the 1500 block of E. 33rd St., and Darnell Graves, 18, of the 1500 block of Lester Morton Court, police said.

Mr. Gray was shot in the right side and left arm and was in critical but stable condition last night at the Maryland Shock Trauma Center.

Mr. Graves was shot in the left wrist and was in good condition at Johns Hopkins Hospital.

The Chevette was last seen heading south on Bond Street, police said. The motive for the shooting isn't known, police said.

In an unrelated shooting about 2:29 a.m. Wednesday, Robert Daryll Leggett, 31, of the 2800 block of Fox St., was shot several times when a gunman chased him in the 300 block of W. 28th St. and fired five shots from a handgun, police said.

Mr. Leggett was released from Shock Trauma following treatment, hospital officials said.

Police also reported yesterday that a 16-year-old suspect was being held without bail in connection with Tuesday night's shooting of four people at the corner of Chase Street and Patterson Park Avenue in East Baltimore.

Antonio E. Jeffery of the 2700 block of The Alameda is charged as an adult with four counts each of attempted murder and handgun violations, police said.

The four victims received minor wounds.
