Baltimore homicide detectives are investigating the deaths of three people who died over a span of 24 hours adding to another violent weekend in the city, according to a release published by the police department.
On Monday police were investigating two homicides that happened within an hour of each other. The investigations follow a violent weekend during which 14 people were shot — three fatally — and one person died from blunt force trauma, police said.
With the two fatal shootings Monday afternoon, Baltimore surpassed 150 homicides for the year.
Western district officers were called to the Woodbrook neighborhood Monday afternoon at 1:18 for a shooting in the 2300 block of North Fulton Ave. After arriving, police said they found an adult male with gunshot wounds.
On July 1, police identified the victim as 43-year-old Robert Davis.
Davis was transported to an area hospital but could not be saved, police said.
Fifty minutes later, officers responded to a shooting at a metro station in the Northwest district’s East Arlington neighborhood.
Officers arrived at the 4300 block of Wabash Ave. and found a 32-year-old man suffering from at least one gunshot wound. The man was taken to the University of Maryland Shock Trauma Center where he later died from his injuries, police said.
On July 1, police identified the victim as Antoine Webster.
Several people expressed frustration to a Baltimore Sun reporter about not being able to access West Cold Spring Lane near the station. But by about 4 p.m., police had torn the crime scene tape and firefighters were hosing down the street, washing away the blood.
