BALTIMORE, MD – Gunshots rang out in Northwest Baltimore Wednesday night sending five people, including one juvenile to the hospital for non-life-threatening gunshot wounds.
Baltimore Police Commissioner Michael Harrison said Northwest District patrol officers responded to the 2800 block of Boarman Avenue for a shooting Investigation.
“Once at the location, officers located three male victims suffering from gunshot wounds to the extremities. Those victims were transported to area hospitals, with non-life-threatening injuries,” Commissioner Harrison said. “Shortly afterward two additional victims walked into an area hospital seeking treatment for gunshot wounds. These victims have non-life-threatening injuries.”
Earlier in the day, at approximately 1:33 p.m., Eastern District patrol officers responded to the 700 block of Rose Street where four people were shot.
“Once there, officers located a 25-year-old-male, unresponsive, suffering from apparent gunshot wounds. Officers also located a 27-year-old female and a 27-year-old male, suffering from apparent non-life-threatening gunshot wounds,” the Baltimore Police Department said in a statement earlier in the day. “Medics transported the victims to an area hospital where the 25-year-old male victim later died. While on the scene, officers were advised of a fourth victim at an area hospital, a 40-year-old male, suffering from an apparent non-life-threatening gunshot wound.”
At this point, Commissioner Harrison said he does not know if the two shootings were related in any way.
