Baltimore Police released a photo of a vehicle used in a drive-by shooting that injured three men Wednesday morning at a shopping plaza in Frankford in Northeast Baltimore. Hours later, a 29-year-old man was shot and killed in East Baltimore.
The photo shows two people, one wearing a hood, pointing guns out of the windows of a dark-colored van. The shooting occurred before 10 a.m. in the 5000 block of Sinclair Lane. Two 21-year-old men and a 36-year-old man were shot multiple times and taken to the hospital by ambulance.
“What we have so far is a vehicle drove up, shot out the vehicle, striking the men here at the location and fled northbound,” Det. Vernon Davis said at the scene.
One of the 21-year-old men suffered multiple gunshot wounds and needed surgery, police said. He was in critical condition at the hospital. The other two men were hit once and have injuries that are not life-threatening.
“One of the victims was shot, and he ran toward Giant to ask for assistance,” Davis said, adding that police are putting the pieces together.
Investigators believe an unidentified shooter pulled up in a minivan and shot the three victims before fleeing the scene, according to police. Police are looking for the vehicle.
There were dozens of shell casings scattered in front of a Mexican restaurant within Parkside Shopping Center along Sinclair Lane.
Nine hours later, a 29-year-old man was shot in South Clifton Park in East Baltimore and died of his injuries at Johns Hopkins Hospital.
Police arrived around 7:25 p.m. in the 1900 block of Belair Road and found the man suffering from gunshot wounds. Emergency medical services took him to the hospital, where he was pronounced dead.
