72-year-old woman, 22-year-old man killed in Baltimore, police say

Two people were found dead — including a 72-year-old woman — and another two people were injured in a pair of separate incidents in Baltimore overnight, police said.

The 72-year-old, Lillian Herndon, was found dead “with obvious signs of foul play” at her home just after 5 p.m. in the 5500 block of the Alameda near Northwood Drive after being reported missing, police said.


“Homicide detectives were called in to investigate this incident and are actively working leads,” detective Donny Moses, a police spokesman, said in a statement.

Reached by phone, her son Alvin Hutton declined to comment, citing the ongoing investigation.


In the other incident, a 22-year-old man was killed and two others were injured in a triple shooting about 1:15 a.m. in the 200 block of S. Collins Ave., near Frederick Avenue, police said.
