Two People Found Shot in Same Baltimore Neighborhood

Baltimore police say two people were found shot in the Carrollton Ridge section of Baltimore on Monday, April 17. The first shooting occurred in the 1800 block of Wilkens, where the victim, a male, was hit multiple times. The man was taken to the hospital and remained there overnight. No suspect was seen or taken into custody.

Just two and a half hours later, law enforcement officers were in the 200 block of S. Payson answering a call when they reportedly heard gunfire and observed a man firing a gun at another person just up the street. The shooter apparently fled when the officers responded on foot. Police say the victim was shot in the leg and was listed in good condition at a local hospital. The alleged perpetrator could not be found.
