Five people were killed in Baltimore from Saturday afternoon to Sunday morning, as gunfire reverberated throughout the city, police said.
The deadly weekend in Baltimore saw three people killed in an approximately 30-minute stretch before and after midnight Sunday, according to police.
The five killings spanned much of the city. Police said the victims included a man who dodged bullets in South Baltimore and was killed after the shooters ran him over with a vehicle Saturday afternoon.
Patrol officers assigned to the Baltimore Police Department’s Eastern District Station responded to a ShotSpotter, gunfire detection alert, around 12:30 a.m. Sunday.
They arrived shortly thereafter in the 1900 block of Homewood Ave., near the Green Mount Cemetery, to find a man who appeared to have been shot and was unresponsive, police said. Medics pronounced the man dead at the scene in East Baltimore’s Midway neighborhood.
About 30 minutes earlier, police said, patrol officers assigned to the Southwest District Station were notified of a shooting in the 3500 block of Leeds Ave.
The officers found a male who had been shot several times. Police said he was taken to a hospital where he died later.
Police said officers assigned to patrol from the Eastern District station got reports of a shooting around 11:26 p.m. Saturday.
When they arrived in the 1100 block of Hillman St., police said, they found a 46-year-old man with a gunshot wound.
Medics took the man to the hospital, where he later died, police said.
There had been an approximately nine-hour break in the violence, according to Baltimore police.
At about 2:40 p.m. Saturday, police said, Western District patrol officers followed up on a ShotSpotter alert in the 900 block of W. Mulberry St.
There, in the city’s Harlem Park neighborhood, officers found a man and a 32-year-old woman who had been shot. Police described the woman’s injuries as non-life-threatening.
Police said medics took the two to hospitals, and that the man died from his injuries.
A 32-year-old man killed in the Brooklyn neighborhood was standing in the 3500 block of Potee St. when more than one shooter opened fire at him but missed, police said. The victim, unidentified by police, tried to flee but his assailants struck him with their vehicle.
Patrol officers found the man seriously injured in the street around 2:30 p.m. He was taken to a hospital where he died.
Police reported at least four nonfatal shootings since Friday in addition to the homicides.
The police department said it encouraged anyone with information about the killings to call homicide detectives at 410-396-2411 or, if they wish to remain anonymous, dial 1-866-7LOCKUP to leave a tip with Metro Crime Stoppers.
