Three men were injured, one seriously, in separate shootings in Baltimore Tuesday morning, police said.
A 47-year-old man told police he had been parking his car in the 200 block of S. Conkling Street in Highlandtown, where an argument arose between him and two unknown suspects. One pulled out a handgun and shot him at least once in the chest, police said.
Officers were called just after midnight and found the victim in the 3700 block of Claremont Street, where he’d managed to drive after the shooting before seeking help, police said.
He was conscious and breathing when he was taken to a hospital, where his injuries were listed as “serious,” police said.
About an hour later, police were called to Good Samaritan Hospital, where a 28-year-old victim had arrived with a bullet wound to his thigh. Because he gave conflicting stories and there were no calls for discharging in the area, police don’t know where that shooting took place.
In a third incident just before 9:15 a.m., a man was shot in the upper body in the 3100 block of Bel Air Road and ran to the same block of nearby Mareco Avenue in Northeast Baltimore, police said. He was taken to a hospital, and police gave no information on his condition.
Anyone with information in any of these incidents may call 410-396-2221 or Metro Crime Stoppers at 1-866-7LOCKUP.
