Baltimore police say two men were shot and killed in the city in separate incidents Wednesday.
The first happened overnight, as Northwest District patrol officers responded to the 4000 block of Boarman Ave. at 12:52 a.m. for a report of a shooting. When officers arrived, they found a man suffering from gunshot wounds, police said.
The man was taken to an area hospital where he later died.
Police said another man was fatally shot in Central Baltimore on Wednesday afternoon.
The department said officers responded to the 400 block of Manse Court around 4 p.m. for a ShotSpotter alert and located a man who’d been shot. He was taken to Maryland Shock Trauma where he was pronounced dead about a half-hour later, police said.
The department did not identify either of the two victims.
The city has had 51 homicides this year, just three fewer killings than this same time last year. Nonfatal shootings are outpacing last year’s total at this time with 106, compared to 91 in 2020.
