Man killed in Union Square, among 5 dead in weekend shootings

So far this year, 294 people have been killed in Baltimore.

A man was shot to death in Union Square Sunday, police said.

Police identified him as 24-year-old David Moore. Police were called about 4:25 p.m. to the first block of S. Gilmor St., where they found him with several gunshot wounds. He was pronounced dead shortly after being taken to the University of Maryland Shock Trauma Center, police said.

Moore's death was one of five killings in what has been a violent weekend — in the most violent year in decades — in Baltimore.

In the early hours of Sunday morning, another man was found shot to death in the 2700 block of Edmondson Ave., Baltimore police said. The unidentified man, found at 1:34 a.m., suffered several gunshot wounds.

Police also reported that a second victim who was found shot in the Bel-Air Edison neighborhood Saturday morning has died from his wounds. The unidentified man, found at 9:07 a.m. in the 5500 block of Bel Air Road, was taken the University of Maryland Shock Trauma Center for treatment, but was pronounced dead at 3:44 a.m., police said.

He was among three men killed in Belair-Edison Saturday. A double-fatal shooting occurred in the 3200 block of Chesterfield Ave., a quiet well-kept residential block, at 2:56 a.m. Police found the victims lying in the street, where 37-year-old Lerell McBride was pronounced dead by medics.

Robert Joseph Adams, 38, was taken to a hospital, where he was also pronounced dead.

Residents heard gunshots, but detectives had little information about what led to the shooting. Adams, who had been living out of state, returned to Baltimore recently to care for an ailing relative, according to police.

"So far it's a 'whodunit,'" said spokeswoman Nicole Monroe.

Homicide detectives are investigating each of the shootings; anyone with information may call 410-396-2100.

So far this year, 294 people have been killed, far outpacing last year's homicide total.
