3 men injured in overnight shootings, Baltimore police say

Baltimore police said three men were injured in shootings Thursday night.

Two men — a 29-year-old and a 27-year-old — were shot at about 9:05 p.m. in the 4800 block of Lorelly Avenue in the Northeast neighborhood of Frankford.

Officers did not immediately find any victims in the area. Police were then called to Sinclair Lane at Erdman Avenue for a vehicle accident and found one of the passengers, a 29-year-old man, had been shot in the head on Lorelly Avenue.

The victim was taken to the hospital for a non life-threatening injury.

Police said a 27-year-old man, who was also injured in the shooting on Lorelly Avenue, walked into an area hospital and was treated for non life-threatening injuries. He was later released from the hospital.

Police said both of the victims were speaking with a group of people when three masked men walked into the block. One of the suspects was armed with a shotgun, and fired at the crowd, striking the victims with pellets.

At about 9:40 p.m., officers were called to the 1600 block of Olmstead Street in Curtis Bay where a 29-year-old man was suffering from gunshot wounds to his shoulder and leg, police said. The victim was taken to an area hospital with non life-threatening injuries.

The victim told police he was getting in his car when he saw three males walk out of the alley. He then heard gunshots and realized he had been shot.

Anyone with information regarding on either shooting incident is asked to call detectives at 410-396-2221, Metro Crime Stoppers at 1-866-7LOCKUP, or text a tip using the BPD Mobile App.
