Detectives determined the shooting may have been domestic and “quickly” identified the 24-year-old as the suspect, police said.

Officers said they were called around 3:20 a.m. to the 4400 block of Plainfield Ave. for a shooting.

When officers arrived at the Frankford neighborhood location, they said, they found a 35-year-old man who had been shot in his hip and thigh. Police said earlier Wednesday that the man was expected to survive but in an evening news release the department said he died at Johns Hopkins Bayview “shortly after arrival.”

Later Wednesday, police responded to two more shootings in Baltimore, the department said. Another man was also found unresponsive at a scene but police do not know whether he was shot.

Officers were called to North Baltimore on Wednesday just after 7 p.m. for shooting.

Police said when they arrived in the 5900 block of York Road in the Rosebank neighborhood they found a 52-year-old woman suffering from a gunshot wound to the hand. The woman was transported to an area hospital, police said, but did not disclose her condition.

The woman told police she was trying to get into her car when a Black man approached her with a gun. The man ordered the woman out of her car, police said, and when she refused the suspect shot her in the hand.

Police did not provide a description of the suspect or say whether any arrests were made.

About an hour and a half later police were called downtown after hearing a discharging.

When officers arrived at Calvert and Redwood streets, they found a 24-year-old man suffering from a gunshot wound to the leg and a 19-year-old man unresponsive.

Both men were transported to an area hospital where the teen died, police said. His cause of death is unknown, police said.
