One killed, two wounded in shootings a mile apart in West Baltimore

One man was killed and two were injured in two shootings about a mile apart in West Baltimore, police said.

One man was killed and two others were injured in two shootings about a mile apart in West Baltimore Monday night, police said.

A 33-year-old man was shot to death outside Red Fox Liquor store at the corner of Pennsylvania and N. Fulton avenues in the Parkview/Woodbrook neighborhood, police said. Officers were called at about 9:16 p.m. and he died at a hospital about a half hour later, police said.

The killing happened near the 2200 block of N. Fulton Ave., where a triple fatal shooting took place in an apartment across the street from Westside Elementary School in March 2013.

Investigators placed several evidence markers on the sidewalk Monday night and could be seen picking up at least one shell casing outside the liquor store at the busy intersection, which they closed down as officers were called to the second shooting scene.

About a mile south, two men — one of them a 19-year-old — were found shot near the intersection of W. Lafayette and N. Monroe streets in Sandtown-Winchester at about 10:09 p.m., police said. The first was found on the Monroe Street sidewalk with several gunshot wounds to his body; a short time later, police found the second victim, the teenager, shot in the shoulder around the corner in the 1900 block of Harlem Ave., police said. The first victim was listed in critical condition and the second was serious but stable.

Detectives were shining their flashlights around the sidewalk and down an alley as they searched for evidence in the double shooting, and a large group of residents gathered, watching them across W. Lafayette Street Monday night.

None of the victims were identified. Investigators have not determined suspects or motives in the shootings, police said. The department's homicide unit was investigating both crimes, and anyone with information may call 410-396-2100.
