Two men were stabbed to death in separate incidents hours earlier.
Just after noon, a 59-year-old man was stabbed during an argument with a family member in the 2900 block of Brighton St. in Baltimore’s Northwest Community Action neighborhood. Police identified the victim Monday as Preston Merritt. He was taken to an area hospital and pronounced dead.
Less than two hours later, a 27-year-old man was fatally stabbed in the 1600 block of Bruce St. in Sandtown-Winchester, approximately a mile from the first stabbing incident. He was taken to a hospital, where he died.
