Man dies after being shot in 2004; four shot, two fatally, Monday and Tuesday, Baltimore police say

Two men died in shootings Monday night and Tuesday morning, and another man who was shot more than 15 years ago died Saturday as a result of his injuries, according to the Baltimore Police Department.

Quinton Rodgers, 31, died at the University of Maryland Medical Center on Saturday. Rodgers was paralyzed after being shot multiple times on Oct. 6, 2004, according to police.


The Office of the Chief Medical Examiner ruled his death was a result of complications from his shooting, police said.

On Oct. 15, 2004, a 26-year-old man was arrested and charged with first-degree attempted murder in Rodgers’ shooting. Charges against him were later dismissed.


In a separate incident, about 10:25 p.m. Monday, police were called to the 3000 block of Lafayette Ave. in the Franklintown Road neighborhood, where they found a man with gunshot wounds.

He was taken to a hospital and died from his injuries, police said Tuesday morning.

On Tuesday just before 11 a.m., police responded to a report of a shooting in the 800 block of N. Belnord Road in East Baltimore’s Madison-Eastend neighborhood. Officers found two victims — a 26-year-old man with gunshot wounds to his head, and a 25-year-old man with gunshot wounds to his back and stomach, according to police.

The 26-year-old was pronounced dead at the scene and the 25-year-old was taken to a hospital, police said.

Another man was wounded in a separate shooting Monday night just before 10 p.m. in the 3100 block of Lawnview Ave. in Belair-Edison. He was shot in the leg and taken to a hospital, according to police.

The victims’ identities were not immediately available.
