Separate shootings in Baltimore Saturday morning leave one man dead, two others injured

A man was shot to death in North Baltimore Saturday morning, hours after two men were injured in a Central Baltimore shooting, police said.

Baltimore Police also said a man who walked into a city hospital shortly before 3 a.m. was not a shooting victim, as they initially reported, but had shot himself in the leg and sought medical treatment.


Officers were called to the intersection of 21st Street and Maryland Avenue at about 7:49 and found an unidentified man suffering from gunshot wounds. The victim was transported to University of Maryland Shock Trauma and pronounced dead shortly after, police said.

Police are asking anyone with information to call homicide detectives at 410-396-2100. Those who wish to remain anonymous can call the Metro Crime Stoppers at 1-866-7LOCK-UP.


Baltimore Police say are also investigating two early Saturday morning shootings that injured three men.

Officers patrolling Central Baltimore heard gunshots around 2:49 a.m. and found two men, ages 33 and 28, on the first block of Gay Street suffering from gunshot wounds, according to police.

They were transported to area hospitals with injuries that police say are not life-threatening, and Central District shooting detectives are leading the investigation.

Less than an hour later, officers responded to an area hospital after a man arrived around 3:26 a.m. with a gunshot wound to the leg. He is expected to survive, according to police.

Police initially said the man was shot in the 1400 block of Mountmor Court, but have now classified the man’s injury as self-inflicted.
