Two men were shot, and one of them is in critical condition, in separate incidents across Baltimore on Tuesday, police said.
Baltimore Police said a Western District officer was patrolling in the area of West Pennsylvania and West North avenues when he heard several gunshots around 6 p.m.
The officer then found a man suffering from a gunshot wound to the chest and thigh at Stockton and Cumberland streets in Penn North. Police said the officer immediately applied a chest seal to the victim’s chest and a tourniquet to his leg until medics arrived.

About 45 minutes later, Western District officers were called to the 1600 block of N. Bentalou St. in Bridgeview/Greenlawn for a shooting.
Police said they found a 20-year-old man suffering from a gunshot wound to the leg. The man was transported to an area hospital, police said.
