Police are investigating after three shooting victims — two men and one woman — walked into area hospitals Tuesday seeking treatment.
Police said two of the shootings, which took place in the span of a few minutes Tuesday morning, are related. “Within moments of each other these two men both walked into area hospitals,” said police spokeswoman Nicole Monroe.
Around 5:04 a.m., police went to an area hospital to investigate after a 25-year-old man walked in to be treated for a gunshot wound to the rear end. The victim told investigators that he was shot while fleeing gunfire at the intersection of McClean Boulevard at Westfield Avenue in Hamilton Hills, a neighborhood in the northeast section of the city.
Moments later, officers were notified that another 30-year-old man had walked into a Baltimore County hospital seeking treatment for a gunshot wound to the torso.
Citywide Shooting detectives responded to the scene and assumed control of the investigation. Detectives were not able to interview the 30-year-old victim because he was undergoing treatment for his injuries.
At around 4:35 p.m., officers went to an area hospital after a report of another walk-in shooting victim. The victim, a 28-year-old woman, told investigators she was in the area of 23rd Street and Guilford Avenue in Barclay when she was shot.
Anyone with information is urged to contact Baltimore Police Department Citywide Shooting detectives at 410-396-2221.
