Three men were shot in two separate incidents in Baltimore Wednesday, police said.
In the first, two men were injured in a double shooting near the Baltimore City-Anne Arundel County border, city police said.
Officers were called to the 4100 block of Mariban Court in the Brooklyn neighborhood of South Baltimore just before 3 p.m., police said. The victims were taken to hospitals, and one was in critical condition, prompting the police Homicide unit to assist Southern District detectives with the investigation, police said.
One victim, a 20-year-old shot multiple times, remained in critical condition Wednesday night; the second, a 26-year-old shot in the torso, was treated and released from a hospital, police said.
Police temporarily cordoned off part of 10th Street, which they later identified as the location of the shooting, as they placed evidence markers around a bicycle lying in the middle of the road next to a pool of blood.
Later, at about 6:45 p.m., a 23-year-old man was critically injured in a shooting in the 4500 block of Parkton St. in the Yale Heights neighborhood of Southwest Baltimore, police said. His wounds were also serious enough to merit a Homicide investigation, and anyone with information may call 410-396-2100, police said.
The Parkton Street shooting took place just across Maidens Choice Run from Marydell Road in Irvington, where 24-year-old Owen Crayton was shot to death a month earlier. Joseph Tyree Ryles, 25, was charged with murder, involuntary manslaughter, assault and reckless endangerment in the killing, police said.
