A woman died after suffering from massive trauma to the head in her home and a man died after being shot in the head in separate incidents across Baltimore Monday, police said.
Baltimore Police said officers were called to a North Baltimore neighborhood for an assault around 5 p.m. When police arrived they found a 30-year-old man being subdued by a neighbor. The 30-year-old then directed officers inside the home in the 800 block of Wilbert Ave.
When police went inside, officers said they found Constance Price-Barnes, 59, suffering from massive head trauma. Price-Barnes was taken to Johns Hopkins Hospital where she later died.
The man was taken into custody and transported to an area hospital for a psychiatric evaluation. Police said a warrant has been issued for his arrest and will be served once he is released from the hospital.
Later Monday night, police responded to a ShotSpotter alert in the Millhill neighborhood of Southwest Baltimore. When officers arrived in the 300 block of S. Bentalou St. police said they found a 33-year-old man who had been shot in the head. The man was taken to an area hospital in grave condition and died hours later, police said Tuesday afternoon.
