Police: 3 injured in Baltimore shootings, including 2 young men

Two young men were shot — less than a mile apart — overnight in Baltimore, police said Saturday morning.

Police were called to an area hospital at about 11:45 Friday night for a report of a walk-in shooting victim. They found a 19-year-old suffering from a gunshot wound to his arm. The victim told investigators he was shot while in the 900 block of Franklintown Road, which is near Alexander Hamilton Elementary School.

About 30 minutes later, officers responded to the 2900 block of Presbury St. for a report of a shooting and found a 16-year-old with gunshot wounds. He was taken to an area hospital to be treated.

The two shooting scenes are about 0.8 miles apart.

It was not immediately clear whether the two incidents in Southwest Baltimore were connected. Police spokesman Detective Jeremy Silbert said the investigation is still ongoing.

Police also responded around 8:10 a.m. Saturday to a shooting in the 1000 block of Pennsylvania Ave. An adult male with gunshot wounds was taken to an area hospital.

Detectives from the Citywide Shooting Unit are investigating these incidents. They ask anyone with information to call 410-396-2221 or Metro Crime Stoppers at 1-866-7Lockup.
