Police said they were called at about 6:35 p.m. to the 300 block of E. University Parkway for a shooting.

When they arrived in North Baltimore’s Oakenshawe neighborhood, they found an 84-year-old man suffering from a self-inflicted gunshot wound to his head. Police said they also found a 35-year-old man with multiple gunshot wounds. He died at the scene.

The older man was transported to an area hospital where he died, police said.

Detectives determined that the men were involved in an argument when the older man shot his younger relative and then himself.

A little more than three hours later, at 9:54 p.m., Eastern District patrol officers responded to the 400 block of E. 21st St. in the Barclay neighborhood in North Baltimore for a report of a shooting.

Once at the location, police said, officers located a 32-year-old man suffering from gunshot wounds to the body.

The victim was transported to an area hospital where his condition is unknown.

Due to the victim’s injuries, Homicide detectives have been notified.

Police said a third man was shot just before midnight in the 6200 block of York Road in North Baltimore.

Officers found the 35-year-old man suffering from gunshot wounds. Police did not provide his condition Thursday but said district shooting detectives are investigating.

Anyone with information is asked to contact detectives at 410-396-2100 or Metro Crime Stoppers at 1-866-7Lockup.
