A man is in critical condition after a shooting in Northeast Baltimore’s Frankford neighborhood, and another was shot at an unknown location Wednesday, police said.
Just past 1 a.m., police officers responded to the 5300 block of Eastbury Avenue, near the Parkside Apartments and Townhomes, for a reported shooting, according to a news release from the Baltimore Police Department. Officers found a 24-year-old man, who was suffering from apparent gunshot wounds, and he was taken to the hospital.
The Frankford neighborhood, home to about 17,000 residents, is the city’s most populous, according to the 2020 Census. There have been seven homicides in Frankford this year. Earlier this summer, residents grappled with a quadruple shooting, which left two young men dead and two others injured. The shooting took place outside a home on a block that residents described as quiet. Lawn chairs were strewn about beneath a small tent in the home’s driveway in the aftermath.
A 37-year-old man was shot in Midtown-Edmondson around 10:45 a.m., police said. An officer was driving in the 1900 block of Edmondson Avenue when a driver pulled up beside the police car and told the officer that his passenger had been shot. Paramedics took the man, Eric White, to the hospital, where he later died from his injuries, police said.
Homicide detectives have set the location of this incident to the 1300 block of North Cary Street.
Police said they did not know the exact location of the shooting.
