A 60-year-old woman was stabbed to death and an 80-yearold woman was crit­i­cally in­jured Sun­day night in West Bal­ti­more, po­lice said.

Po­lice said the stab­bings hap­pened dur­ing a “do­mes­tic-re­lated in­ci­dent” in the BridgeviewGreen­lawn neigh­bor­hood.

Of­fi­cers were called to a fam­ily dis­tur­bance around 11:35 p.m. in the 2500 block of W. Lafayette Ave. Sharon Dorsey was found stabbed in her up­per body. She was taken to Maryland Shock Trauma Cen­ter, where she later died.

Po­lice lo­cated a se­cond vic­tim, an 80-year-old woman with stab wounds to the body. She was taken to an area hos­pi­tal and re­mains in crit­i­cal con­di­tion.

Po­lice said they have iden­ti­fied and are search­ing for a “per­son of in­ter­est.”

De­tec­tives are also in­ves­ti­gat­ing two fa­tal shoot­ings that oc­curred three hours apart Mon­day af­ter­noon on the city’s west side.

Po­lice said the first shoot­ing was re­ported shortly af­ter 2 p.m. in the 3700 block of Beehler Ave. A 29-year-old man was shot sev­eral times in the up­per and lower body.

He was taken to a hos­pi­tal in grave con­di­tion and later pro­nounced dead, po­lice said.

Po­lice did not re­lease the name of the vic­tim or in­for­ma­tion about a mo­tive or sus­pects.

About 4:45 p.m., of­fi­cers found a man suf­fer­ing from gun­shot wounds in­side a car that had crashed into a tree on North Mon­roe Street, just north of West Bal­ti­more Street, po­lice said. The man was taken to a hos­pi­tal, where he died.

Another vic­tim turned up at a hos­pi­tal and was be­ing treated for gun­shot wounds, po­lice said.

ALexus sedan with a shat­tered driver’s side win­dow and bul­let holes in the door was rest­ing against a tree.

Three blocks north, de­tec­tives lo­cated shat­tered glass and bul­let cas­ings.

Homi­cide de­tec­tives asked any­one with in­for­ma­tion about the in­ci­dents to con­tact po­lice at 410-396-2100 or Metro Crime Stop­pers at 1-866-7LOCKUP.
