Capital Gazette wins special Pulitzer Prize citation for coverage of newsroom shooting that killed five

One man killed, another wounded in shootings near Morgan State; Nearly a dozen gunshots ring out near Hillen and Pentwood roads


A young man was killed and another wounded near Morgan State University in Northeast Baltimore just before midnight last night when nearly a dozen gunshots rang out near Hillen and Pent-wood roads.

Witnesses said they heard tires screeching about 11: 45 p.m. and then saw two young men run from a blue Honda and begin banging on doors in the 1600 block of Pent-wood Road for help. One of the men was declared dead on a Pent-wood Road porch, and the other was taken to Johns Hopkins Hospital for treatment.

It was unclear if the victims were students at Morgan, whose Harper-Tubman freshman dormitory faces the scene of the shootings. Their identities were not released.

Police said they had no suspects in the case early this morning.
