Roughly 45 minutes after police learned of the dead male, officers assigned to the Central District arrived at a hospital after receiving reports of a walk-in shooting victim.

Police said the officers encountered a 33-year-old woman who’d been shot in the back, describing her injuries as non-life-threatening.

Police said officers learned the woman was shot after leaving a nightclub near the 200 block of E. Baltimore St., not far from The Block, a stretch of strip clubs and bars downtown.

At 10:20 a.m., police found a man who had been shot and was unresponsive in the 800 block of Pontiac Ave. in the Brooklyn neighborhood. He was taken to Maryland Shock Trauma Center and pronounced dead.

Then, just after 11 a.m., a 15-year-old boy and a 20-year-old man walked into a hospital seeking treatment for gunshot wounds from a shooting that occurred in the 2400 block of Christian St.

Another teenage boy, 17 years old, was shot at 11:08 a.m., telling police he was walking on Park Heights Ave. when someone with a gun approached him. They struggled over the weapon, and it fired, striking him in the leg.

Then around 1:17 p.m., a 25-year-old man was found in the 1600 block of Carswell St. suffering from a non-life threatening gunshot wound, police said. He was taken to an area hospital.

Police asked anyone with information about the fatal shootings to call 410-396-2100. Anyone who knows something but wishes to remain anonymous can dial 1-866-7LOCKUP to leave a tip with Metro Crime Stoppers.
