According to a city police spokeswoman, the vehicle hit a parked car before coming to rest. The parked car was occupied by a woman and an infant. Both were checked out by medical personnel and were uninjured, the spokeswoman said.

Earlier, shortly before 11 p.m., police were called to the 700 block of E. 20th St. in East Baltimore Midway to investigate a shooting. They found a man suffering from gunshot wounds. Emergency medical workers declared him dead at the scene, police said.

One man was fatally stabbed and another was shot in separate incidents early Saturday morning, according to Baltimore police. The stabbing and shooting followed an especially violent Friday, when 12 people were shot, including two young children in a mass shooting.

Police did not identify either victim. They urged anyone with information to contact homicide detectives at 410-396-2100. Anonymous tips can be left with the Metro Crime Stoppers tip line at 1-866-7LOCKUP.

Three other people were also shot Saturday evening in non-fatal incidents.

About 8 p.m., a 33-year-old man was shot in the shoulder in the 3900 block of Boarman Ave. in Northwest Baltimore, police said.

A 1 year-old was shot in the leg and a 2-year-old in the torso in a triple shooting in South Baltimore on Friday night, Baltimore Police said.

Less than an hour later, another 33-year-old man was shot in the knee in the 400 block of N. East Ave. in East Baltimore, they said.

Then, at 11:23 p.m., officers were called to the 1100 block of Patterson Park Ave. to investigate another shooting. A short time later, a 25-year-old man sought treatment at a hospital for a gunshot wound to the wrist.

Police asked anyone with information to contact citywide shooting detectives at 410-396-2221, or the Metro Crime Stoppers line.
