Two men killed in stabbing, another shot to death in Baltimore

Baltimore police said two men were fatally stabbed downtown early Sunday.

Two men were fatally stabbed in downtown Baltimore overnight, and a man was found shot to death Sunday morning, police said.

Police said 19- and 28-year-old men died overnight after they were stabbed in an assault that occurred in the 300 block of North Calvert St.

Officers responded to an area hospital to reports of a walk-in stabbing victim around 2 a.m., where they found the 28-year-old man suffering from multiple stab wounds to his torso. A short time later, police said, the 19-year-old walked in with similar injuries.

Both men, whom police did not identify, died of their injuries, police said.

Police also said there were several shooting investigations taking place Sunday.

A man was found dead with a gunshot wound in the head in the rear yard of a vacant home in the 1100 block of N. Carrollton Ave. in Sandtown Winchester just after 11 a.m. Sunday, police said. Police said the victim, who was not identified, may have been lying there for days before being found.

At around 10:30 p.m. Saturday, police responded to the 4100 block of Frederick Ave. in Irvington, where they found a 23-year-old man shot in the buttocks. About two hours later, police responded to the 800 block of St. Paul St. in Mount Vernon, where they found a 26-year-old man shot in the back.

Early Sunday, at 5:45 a.m., police responded to an area hospital where a 31-year-old man had walked in with a gunshot wound to the arm. Police said that a preliminary investigation found the man was shot while sitting in a vehicle in the 2300 block of McCulloh St. in the Penn North neighborhood.

The three shooting victims are expected to survive, police said. Any with information on the incidents can call City Wide Shooting Detectives at 410-396-2221 or Metro Crime Stoppers at 1-866-7LOCKUP.
