Shootings in Baltimore this weekend left eight men and one woman injured, two critically, police say.
At about 4:25 p.m. Sunday, Western District patrol officers responded to the 2000 block of Ruxton Ave. in the Mondawmin neighborhood to investigate the discharge of a gun, Baltimore Police said in a news release.
Officers located a 31-year-old woman suffering multiple gunshot wounds to the body, police said, adding that the victim was taken to an area hospital and is listed in critical but stable condition.
Two separate shootings occurred around 2 p.m. Sunday in different parts of the city.
At 2:04 p.m., police officers heard gunshots while patrolling at West Pratt and Payson streets in the city’s Carrollton Ridge neighborhood. They found a 29-year-old man suffering from gunshot wounds to the pelvis. The man was taken to a hospital with injuries that were not considered life-threatening, police said.
Minutes later, at 2:13 p.m., police responded to the 900 block of N. Gilmor St. in Sandtown-Winchester and found a 26-year-old man with multiple gunshot wounds to the upper body. He was taken to a hospital and is in “grave” condition, police said.
Because of the seriousness of the man’s injuries, homicide detectives have taken over the case, police said in a news release.
In the early hours of Sunday morning, police responded to two double shootings.
First, officers responded to the 1700 block of Druid Hill Ave. in Upton at 1:14 a.m. Sunday, where they found two men, ages 29 and 26, suffering from gunshot wounds. Both were transported to the hospital with injuries that weren’t life-threatening.
Police said they believe the two men were inside a vehicle that collided with another vehicle. The situation escalated to an argument, and the other driver shot at the car, striking the two men, police said in a news release.
Not long after, police responded to a shooting in the 5700 block of York Road in North Baltimore’s Rosebank neighborhood.
Around 1:30 a.m., police discovered a 28-year-old man suffering from gunshot wounds to his legs and chest. Then police officers discovered a second victim — a 27-year-old man — suffering from multiple gunshot wounds to his left hand and left thigh. Both men were taken to the hospital and are in stable condition, according to the release.
Police are also investigating a shooting in East Baltimore that left a man in critical condition Saturday.
Officers were patrolling in the area of N. Rose St. around 8:35 p.m. when they heard gunshots coming from the 700 block, according to police. There, officers found a 45-year-old man suffering from multiple gunshot wounds. He was taken to a hospital.
Earlier Saturday, around 1 a.m., police said a man was shot in the face while driving his car in the 2900 block of Reisterstown Road in Liberty Square. As a result, the man crashed the car, and emergency personnel took him to a hospital, where he was listed in stable condition, police said.
