A man has been charged in a fatal shooting that occurred Saturday inside a corner store — then was shot himself while running from the scene, Baltimore police said.
Phillip Johnson, 44, was fatally shot around 9:50 p.m. inside a carryout store in the 1800 block of Edmondson Avenue, police said.
Police on Monday said they have charged Michael Campbell, 32, of the 1700 block of Eager Street. He was arrested Sunday and is being held at Central Booking on charges of first-degree murder, assault and other handgun violations, police said.
Police allege that Campbell entered the store and shot the victim before running away. While running, Campbell was shot by another man — police did not offer details. Campbell took himself to St. Agnes Hospital for treatment of gunshot wounds to his arm and back, police said.
Campbell is awaiting a date with a court commissioner.
Also on Monday, Baltimore police identified three people killed by gunfire since Friday.
Melvin Ford, 35, was killed Friday in the 2500 block of Greenmount Avenue.
Reginald Jefferson was killed Saturday in the 1500 block of Eutaw Place.
