Three men fatally shot on Labor Day in Baltimore

Baltimore homicide detectives were investigating three separate fatal shootings Monday across the southern part of the city.

His name and age were not released, and police did not say whether they have a suspect or motive.

Then around 2 p.m. in the 1600 block of N. Ellwood Ave., in the Southeastern District’s Ellwood Park neighborhood, police said a 26-year-old man was found shot in the “upper body.”

He was taken to a local hospital where he was pronounced dead.

At about 5 p.m., a man was found shot in the 3800 block of Fairhaven Ave. in Curtis Bay. Police said a 24-year-old man was found suffering from a gunshot wound to the torso, and died at a local hospital.

At the scene, the victim’s vehicle crashed into parked vehicles. Its passenger side airbags had deployed. Neighbors said they heard several gunshots followed by the car slamming into the parked vehicles.

Homicide detectives were asking anyone with information to contact them at 410-396-2100 or Metro Crime Stoppers at 1-866-7lockup.
