5 shot, 2 fatally, in Baltimore on Sunday, police say

Five people were shot — two fatally — in five separate incidents in Baltimore on Sunday, according to updated information on the day’s violence provided by Baltimore Police on Monday.

The gunfire began early and ended late.

About 8:23 a.m., officers responded to the 2500 block of Asquith St. in the Coldstream Homestead Montebello neighborhood in Northeast Baltimore and found 43-year-old Donald Rouse, of the same block, suffering from gunshot wounds, police said. He was pronounced dead at Johns Hopkins Hospital.

About 9:55 p.m., a patrol officer heard gunshots, responded to the 5200 block of Cuthbert Ave. and found 29-year-old Terrill Kennedy, of the same block, suffering from gunshot wounds, police said. He was pronounced dead at Sinai Hospital.

The two killings pushed the city’s homicide count to 283 so far in 2017, a record pace.

The other three shootings were not fatal, police said.

About 5:25 p.m., a 26-year-old man was found shot in the abdomen at a local hospital, after having been taken there from the city’s Pimlico neighborhood, according to police.

About 6:51 p.m., an 18-year-old woman was found shot in the shoulder in the 1100 block of W. Lombard St. in Hollins Market, according to police.

About 11:15 p.m., a 26-year-old man walked into a fire station in the 3100 block of W. North Ave. and said he’d been shot in the left shoulder in the 2600 block of Gwynns Falls Parkway, near Mondawmin Mall in West Baltimore.

Police said detectives have learned that four male suspected tried to rob the man at gunpoint, then shot him when he attempted to flee.

Police asked anyone with information in the killings to call homicide detectives at 410-396-2100 or text a tip to 443-902-4824, or call Metro Crime Stoppers at 1-866-7-LOCK-UP.

Anyone with information in the non-fatal shootings is asked to call Metro Crime Stoppers or citywide shooting detectives at 410-396-2221.

Daryl Singleterry, 43, was shot in the upper body Friday afternoon in the 900 block of Eden St., also in East Baltimore.

Those cases also remain open, and anyone with information is asked to call homicide detectives or Metro Crime Stoppers.
