and The Baltimore Sun

Among at least four weekend shootings in Baltimore, one man was killed in Northwest Baltimore and another was injured in an attempted robbery near Riverside Park, police said.

About 4:40 p.m. Saturday, a 26-year-old man was found shot in the 2500 block of Edgecombe Circle North, in the Parklane neighborhood, police said. The man was taken to an area hospital, where he died.

Then, about 9:20 p.m., police believe a 33-year-old man was shot in an attempted robbery in the unit block of E. Barney St. in South Baltimore. Police say two men approached the victim, and one of them shot him in the leg. He was taken to an area hospital for treatment, but police did not provide information on his condition.

Two other shootings were reported early Sunday morning.

A 24-year-old woman arrived at an area hospital about 2 a.m. with a gunshot wound to her leg. Police said they believe she was shot in the 3800 block of Cottage Ave. in the Greenspring neighborhood of Northwest Baltimore.

About 4:10 a.m., police were called to the 1900 block of Harman Ave. in the Morrell Park area of Southwest Baltimore for a report of a shooting. They were at first unable to find any victim at the scene, but took a “person of interest” into custody. They soon found a 26-year-old man being treated at an area hospital for a gunshot wound to his hand.

Anyone with information about the shootings is asked to call 410-396-2221 or Metro Crime Stoppers at 1-866-7Lockup.
