Earlier Sunday, at 7:37 a.m., police responded to the 4900 block of N. Franklintown Road for a vehicle fire. A woman inside the vehicle was pronounced dead on the scene.

Further investigation revealed she had been shot, so the incident is being investigated as a homicide, according to a news release from city police.

A little after 7 a.m. Sunday, police officers were called by members of the Baltimore Fire Department for a report of a man who had been found shot in the 2800 block of Manokin St. in Westport. Upon arrival, officers found the man, who was suffering from gunshot wounds, dead at the scene.

Police said witnesses reported hearing shots around 1:30 a.m.

Police also said officers responded to a hospital around 3:15 a.m. Sunday, where a man walked in seeking treatment for a gunshot wound.

The 23 year-old, who was suffering from a non-life-threatening gunshot wound to his left forearm, told officers he had gotten into an argument at a bar in Baltimore County. When he was leaving, he noticed a vehicle following behind his, he told police. As he drove into the 2600 block of Wilkens Ave., the vehicle pulled alongside his and someone inside the vehicle discharged a firearm, striking him, he told police.

Police also responded to the 1600 block of W. Saratoga St. in Franklin Square just after 12:45 p.m. Saturday for a report of a shooting and found a 33-year-old man suffering from gunshot wounds, according to a news release. The man was taken to the University of Maryland Shock Trauma Center, where he was later pronounced dead.

Early Saturday morning just after 2 a.m., a 60-year-old man arrived at a hospital with a gunshot wound to his hand, according to police. The man told officers he had been shot after getting into a dispute in the 4600 block of Pen Lucy Road in West Baltimore.
