Detectives from Baltimore's Northwestern police district are investigating.

Northeastern district detectives, meanwhile, continue to search for a suspect in what appears to be an early morning robbery that left a man wounded. Police said a victim arrived at an area hospital at 2:18 a.m. Friday after being shot in the thigh. Police said the man was shot in the 3800 block of Frankford Road, and they believe the motive was robbery. Police said the victim was treated and released.

Yet another gunshot victim walked into an area hospital at 3:18 a.m. for a shooting detectives believe occurred across town. In that case, the man was shot in the groin. Detectives suspect the shooting occurred in the 1000 block of Orleans St. in East Baltimore. Police have no suspects, and they described the victim's condition as good.

Homicide detectives have taken over the case of a man shot Thursday afternoon in South Baltimore. Arthur Maurice Hardison, 44, was involved in a dispute with another man at about 5:47 p.m. inside a business in the unit block of W. Patapsco Ave. in Brooklyn, police said. The dispute led to Hardison being shot in the back, police said. He was taken to an area hospital, where he was pronounced dead at 6:25 p.m.
