Man dies after being shot in Southwest Baltimore

Monday night shooting victim in Sandtown-Winchester dies.

A man died Tuesday after being shot in Southwest Baltimore Tuesday afternoon, police said.

Officers called to investigate gunshots in the Saint Josephs neighborhood after noon on Tuesday arrived in the 3300 block of W. Caton Ave. to find a man shot in the torso, Baltimore police spokesman Sgt. Jarron Jackson said. He was taken to an area hospital, where he later died, police said Tuesday night.

Police have no suspects and continue to investigate the shooting, which took place outside Debbie's Kids, a family day care center that operated out of a home on the block. Homicide detectives were investigating.

On Tuesday, police also reported that one of two young men wounded in a shooting Monday night in Sandtown-Winchester has died.

Sterling Day, 22, was found with several gunshot wounds at the intersection of Lafayette Avenue and N. Monroe Street at 10:09 p.m. Day, who lived in the Sherwood-Pentwood-Winston neighborhood, was taken to a hospital but died, police said.

A second man, age 19, was shot in the shoulder and found about two blocks away in the 1900 block of Harlem Avenue.

Police believe the two men were together at Lafayette and Monroe when they were shot, but police have said not identified a motive or suspects.

There have been at least 11 shootings citywide involving multiple victims this year.

The Sandtown incident came about an hour after 33-year-old Daniel Brooks of Penn North was shot dead outside the Red Fox Liquor Store at the corner of Pennsylvania Avenue and N. Fulton Avenue about a mile north in the Parkview/Woodbrook neighborhood. Police have not determined a motive or suspect in that killing.

Baltimore has experienced 44 homicides this year, three more than this time last year.

Anyone with information about either shooting should call 410-396-2100.
