Baltimore police say that in a 24-hour period starting Tuesday morning, 10 people were shot — three fatally. The spate comes amid a year of near-record violence in the city.

One of the homicide victims was a community leader who had just organized a toy drive for children affected by such violence, according to City Council President Brandon Scott.

Sean Davis “went by Layedback Jack and was very respected by the community," Scott, who is running for mayor, said in a statement Tuesday.

“The fact that his death comes just after he hosted a toy drive for children who lost a parent to gun violence is even more tragic,” Scott wrote. “Tonight’s shootings remind us that the horrific violence devastating our communities can affect us all.”

The first homicide took place in East Baltimore’s Oldtown neighborhood Tuesday afternoon. Police wrote that officers responded to the 1000 block of Madison St. at 12:05 p.m. They later found David Wilson suffering from a gunshot wound in the 900 block of Ensor St.

Wilson, 26, was taken to the hospital where he later died.

The second fatal shooting took place in the Waltherson neighborhood of Northeast Baltimore, as police responded to a report of a shooting in the 3200 block of Southern Ave.

The department wrote that officers were called out to the region at 3:18 p.m. and found Keontay Porter who had been shot in the torso.

Porter, 18, was taken to the hospital in critical condition and later died from his injuries Tuesday night, police wrote.

The third homicide took place less than an hour later in Northeast Baltimore’s Coldstream-Homestead-Montebello neighborhood.

Officers responded to a report of a shooting in the 1100 block of East 25th St. at 4:11 p.m. and found Davis, 33, who’d been shot multiple times in the head and torso, police wrote.

Davis was taken to the hospital in critical condition and later died.
