The 16-year-old boy walked into a hospital at about 11:45 p.m. Tuesday after being shot multiple times in the arm and shoulder in the 1500 block of Presstman St., in Sandtown-Winchester, the neighborhood where Freddie Gray was arrested, police said.

An 85-year-old woman was grazed in the leg by a bullet at about 5:11 p.m. Wednesday in the 800 block of Harlem Ave., in Upton, police said.

Just more than an hour later, at 6:21 p.m., a 22-year-old man was shot in the leg in the 800 block of Kirby Lane in Harlem Park, police said.

At the same time police were responding to the 16-year-old on Presstman Street Tuesday night, they were also called to the 2600 block of W. Patapsco Ave. in the Lakeland neighborhood in South Baltimore, where they found a woman shot in the leg.

At 5:23 p.m. Wednesday, a 26-year-old man was shot in the hip, arm and leg in the 3500 block of Reisterstown Road, in Park Circle in Northwest Baltimore.

To date, 237 people have been nonfatally shot this year in Baltimore, an increase from 129 at the same point in 2014, according to police.

Homicides have increased, too, with 128 people killed in 2015, up from 89 killings at this point last year, police said.
