Three men shot, one fatally, in city shootings Tuesday

Three men were shot, one fatally, in Baltimore Tuesday, police said.

Three men were shot, one fatally, in two incidents in Baltimore Tuesday, police said.

Police responded to a shooting in the 800 block of Hillman Street in Johnston Square at about 10:25 p.m. Upon arriving at the scene, on the city's east side, police discovered two adult male victims.

A 38-year-old man was transported to an area hospital to receive treatment for a gunshot wound to the stomach, and the other, a 39-year-old man, was shot in the head and pronounced dead on the scene, police said.

Homicide detectives are investigating. Anyone with information may call 410-396-2100.

Earlier in the day, a man was shot in the leg in West Baltimore's Harlem Park neighborhood, police said.

The shooting at Edmondson and N. Carrollton avenues, police said, was three blocks from where a man shot himself in the foot Monday night.

The neighborhood is one of several on the city's west side that have seen a string of violence since the death of Freddie Gray, a 25-year-old man who died from injuries sustained in police custody after his arrest in nearby Sandtown-Winchester.

Gray's death set off weeks of protest and riots that prompted officials to call a state of emergency, deploy the National Guard and institute a citywide curfew.

Last week, a 22-year-old man was shot in the leg just more than a mile and a half away, in the 800 block of Kirby Lane, police said. Another man was shot in the leg and thigh on May 23 in the 1800 block of Edmondson Ave., about six blocks away from Tuesday's shooting.

No suspect or motive information was released. Anyone with information may call 410-396-2477.
