Then at 9:45 p.m. Friday, officers from the Southwestern District found a 29-year-old man in the 2300 block of Washington Blvd., near Carroll Park. He had been shot multiple times and died at a hospital, police said.

About five minutes later and three miles away, a 43-year-old man suffered a gunshot wound to his neck near Druid Hill Avenue and Paca Street in Seton Hill. The victim told officers that a gunman held him up, robbed him of his wallet and shot him before running away.

The victim was taken to a nearby hospital. Police said he was expected to survive.

At 10:13 p.m., back in the Southwestern District, officers found two men who had been shot multiple times in the 3400 block of Violetville Lane.

Medics transported them to hospitals. One of the victims, a 20-year-old man, died. Police did not disclose the condition or age of the second victim.

A few hours later, in northwest Baltimore, police responded to separate shootings just minutes apart.

Police said a 38-year-old man, who had been shot in the 3600 block of Reisterstown Road in the Park Circle neighborhood, walked into a hospital for treatment at 1:48 a.m. The man had been shot once in the torso. Police said he was in stable condition.

At 2 a.m., a 22-year-old man was shot in the 4900 block of Cordelia Ave. in the nearby Langston Hughes neighborhood and yelled for help, according to police. Someone nearby heard his pleas and rendered aid until police and medics arrived. The victim was taken to a hospital for treatment, and police said he was in stable condition.

At midday, a pregnant woman was walking on North Ellamont Street in the Rosemont neighborhood when she realized she’d been shot. Bullets hit the woman in the arm and buttocks and she had a graze wound to her torso.

Later on Saturday, two men showed up to a hospital seeking treatment for gunshot wounds at 5:16 p.m. Both had multiple gunshot wounds, and police believe they were shot as part of a dispute that happened in the 4500 block of St. Thomas Ave. in Northeast Baltimore’s Frankford neighborhood.

Then at 9:05 p.m., police officers found a 19-year-old man who had been shot in the head in the 5400 block of Lothian Road in the Mid-Govans neighborhood of North Baltimore. Officers had been called to the scene for a report of a shooting.

The teenager, who was unresponsive, was taken to the hospital and police did not immediately know his condition.

The shootings continued early Sunday morning, when a woman in North Baltimore was found with a gunshot wound to her foot in the 4700 block of Wrenwood Avenue. She was taken to an area hospital for treatment around 1 a.m.

About an hour later, police in the Northwest District responded to a report of a shooting in the 3100 block of Oakfield Avenue. They found a 35-year-old man who had been shot in the face.

He is in stable condition at an area hospital.

Police ask that anyone with information about these incidents contact detectives at 410-396-2488 or Metro Crime Stoppers at 1-866-7LOCKUP.
