A man and a woman were injured in separate shootings on the west and northwest side of Baltimore overnight, amid a chaotic day and night of riots that prompted Gov. Larry Hogan to declare a state of emergency.
The woman, a 51-year-old, was shot in the right leg in the 1700 block of N. Fulton Ave., near where much of the violence occurred Monday. She was taken to the University of Maryland Shock Trauma, and her condition was not immediately available.
In a separate incident Monday night, a man was shot in the leg in the 4000 block of Cold Spring Lane on the city's northwest side, roughly 2 miles from the Mondawmin Mall, where skirmishes between police and hundreds of high school students sparked hours of disturbances throughout the city.
The riots followed a week of mostly peaceful protesting over the death of Freddie Gray, a 25-year-old man who died of a severe spinal cord injury sustained while in police custody.
The shooting of the woman happened near where police put additional restraints on Gray before pulling him from the back of a prisoner van.
