There were at least three separate shootings on Saturday, as well, in which five people were wounded — at least one critically.

Officers responded to the 5600 block of Woodmont Ave., in the Woodbourne Heights neighborhood of Northeast Baltimore, just after 4 p.m. and found a 19-year-old woman with a gunshot wound to her arm, police said.

The officers applied a tourniquet before medics transported the woman to a local hospital, police said. Detectives believe the woman was shot near a gas station on The Alameda after being approached by a group of males, police said.

Officers responded to the 1800 block of McCulloh St., in the Druid Heights neighborhood northwest of downtown, about 5 p.m. and found two men shot, one in the leg and the other in the neck, police said. Both were taken to an area hospital, where the man shot in the neck was listed in critical condition, police said.

About 7:46 p.m., officers were alerted to two shooting victims who had arrived at an area hospital. Once there, the officers found two 19-year-old men, one shot in the back and hip and the other shot in the back and hand, police said. Police believe the men were shot in the 200 block of S. Loudon Ave., in the Irvington neighborhood of Southwest Baltimore.

The other shooting incidents had occurred much earlier, one Friday night and one early Saturday morning.

Just before 3 a.m. Saturday, officers were called to the 2600 block of Barclay St. in the Harwood neighborhood for a ShotSpotter alert, but they did not find a victim. About 3:15 a.m., officers were notified of a walk-in shooting victim at an area hospital.

The 33-year-old man had been shot in the hip while on Barclay Street, but was highly intoxicated and uncooperative with investigators, police said.

Hours earlier, officers were called at 10:58 Friday night to the 800 block of Richwood Avenue in the Richnor Springs neighborhood for a report of a shooting. A man wounded in the leg was taken to an area hospital for treatment.

Anyone with information about the shootings is asked to call citywide shooting detectives at 410-396-2221 or Metro Crime Stoppers at 1-866-7-LOCK-UP.
