Baltimore Sun - - MARYLAND -

Two men were killed in sep­a­rate in­ci­dents as snow fell in Bal­ti­more early Sun­day morn­ing, one while he was out­side shov­el­ing, ac­cord­ing to Bal­ti­more po­lice, and a third was killed Sun­day af­ter­noon. None were im­me­di­ately iden­ti­fied. In the first in­ci­dent, a 20-year-old man was found un­re­spon­sive with a stab wound to the neck in the 400 block of Druid Hill Ave., in the Se­ton Hill neigh­bor­hood in cen­tral Bal­ti­more, about 12:38 a.m., po­lice said. In the sec­ond in­ci­dent, a 43-year-old man was found with gun­shot wounds to the shoul­der and head in the 1900 block of W. Lafayette Ave., in the Mid­town Ed­mond­son neigh­bor­hood of West Bal­ti­more, about 4:40 a.m., po­lice said. Po­lice said a pre­lim­i­nary in­ves­ti­ga­tion in­di­cated that the man was out­side shov­el­ing when he was shot. In the third in­ci­dent, po­lice re­sponded to a re­port of a shoot­ing at 3:22 p.m, in the 400 block of Cur­ley St. and found a 30-year-old man un­re­spon­sive, with a gun­shot wound to the chest. Any­one with in­for­ma­tion is asked to call homi­cide de­tec­tives at 410-3962100 or Metro Crime Stop­pers at 1-866-7-LOCK-UP. around 7:30 p.m. Satur­day at the store, at the cor­ner of South Pat­ter­son Park Av­enue and Fleet Street in Can­ton. An em­ployee de­clined to tell a Sun re­porter what hap­pened, say­ing only: “I love my neigh­bors.” Later, he could be heard telling one neigh­bor, “Two guys tried to rob us. It didn’t end well for them.” Po­lice con­firmed that a store em­ployee had shot a rob­ber. An off-duty of­fi­cer heard the shots and helped lo­cate the man who was shot, at the south­west cor­ner of East­ern and South Colling­ton av­enues. Po­lice said the vic­tim was se­ri­ously wounded and taken to a hos­pi­tal for treat­ment. He was­no­tim­me­di­ate­lyi­den­ti­fied. Po­lice said agun­was re­cov­ered. Po­lice data on OpenBal­ti­more show the busi­ness was robbed at gun­point on Nov. 13, with po­lice re­ceiv­ing mul­ti­ple calls for shots fired.
