A 44-year-old man was killed overnight in Southeast Baltimore and another was shot in a separate incident, police said Tuesday morning.

Monday night’s homicide followed an intense afternoon of violence across the city, including two deadly shootings within an hour of each other. Over the weekend 14 people were shot — three fatally — and one person died from blunt force trauma, pushing the city over the 150 homicide threshold in 2019.
