Two fatally shot, woman found dead in burning house Sunday

Baltimore homicides: woman found dead in burned home, man shot near Pimlico Race Course.

Baltimore Homicide detectives are investigating three deaths in the city — fatal shootings in northwest and south Baltimore, and a woman found dead at the scene of a presumed arson, police said.

A man was found dead just before 5 a.m. after being shot multiple times in the 5200 block of Park Heights Ave., near Pimlico Race Course in the Arlington neighborhood, police said.

Investigators said the victim was walking in a parking lot when a suspect shot him multiple times and ran.

Less than two hours later, at 6:35 a.m., firefighters found a woman's body in a burning house in the 6100 block of Eastern Parkway in the Westfield neighborhood of Northeast Baltimore. The victim was pronounced dead at the scene, police said. Investigators believe the woman — whose age was not available — was killed before the home "was intentionally set on fire," police said.

Arson investigators and homicide detectives were on the scene Sunday morning.

A 21-year-old man was shot to death in the 2200 block of Annapolis Road in Westport at about 5 p.m. Sunday evening, police said. Responding officers found the man with a gunshot wound to his back, and he was taken to a hospital, where he died, police said.

Anyone with information pertaining to any of the incidents may contact homicide detectives at 410-396-2100.

Two men and two boys, ages 8 and 10, were shot overnight, police said. Another juvenile was shot Sunday in Cherry Hill, where police and city officials last week celebrated a decrease in violence in the South Baltimore neighborhood. All five victims were expected to survive.
