Two men dead and three oth­ers shot Mon­day across Bal­ti­more

Baltimore Sun - - MARYLAND - By McKenna Ox­en­den

Tyree Co­lion spray-painted “no shoot zone #188” in pur­ple as the crime scene be­hind him bus­tled.

The Bal­ti­more rap­per and anti-vi­o­lence ac­tivist was us­ing the city’s lat­est homi­cide in the O’Don­nell Heights neigh­bor­hood to tell peo­ple to put the guns down.

As Co­lion scrawled on the side­walk Mon­day, fam­ily and friends gath­ered nearby, cry­ing be­hind the crime-scene tape in the 6200 block of Shipview Way.

South­east Dis­trict of­fi­cers were called to the neigh­bor­hood at 10:46 a.m. for a shoot­ing. When po­lice ar­rived, they found a man who had suf­fered sev­eral gun­shot wounds. Po­lice said the man died at the scene.

Just af­ter 1 p.m., the body was fi­nally re­moved from the crime scene. And shortly af­ter that, fam­ily mem­bers got into a fight with one an­other about how they were no­ti­fied about the shoot­ing.

It took four po­lice of­fi­cers to break it up as other fam­ily mem­bers yelled, “He wouldn’t have wanted this! Keep the peace!”

Po­lice have not iden­ti­fied the man and fam­ily de­clined to iden­tify him to a Bal­ti­more Sun re­porter.

The O’Don­nell Heights homi­cide is one of four fa­tal shoot­ings since Sun­day, when a 17-year-old boy was killed, a 37-year-old man died of his in­juries and three oth­ers were in­jured in sep­a­rate shoot­ings.

Just past mid­night Mon­day, West­ern dis­trict of­fi­cers were called to the 1500 block of Trac­tion St. for a shoot­ing.

When po­lice ar­rived in the Penn North neigh­bor­hood they found a man suf­fer­ing from gun­shot wounds. Po­lice said the man was taken to Shock Trauma where he died shortly af­ter ar­riv­ing.

About 50 min­utes later, po­lice were called to the 900 block of E. 41st St. for a shoot­ing.

When of­fi­cers ar­rived in the Pen Lucy neigh­bor­hood, they found a 36-year-old man suf­fer­ing from gun­shot wounds.

Po­lice said the man was taken to an area hos­pi­tal for treat­ment.

Not long af­ter, at1:37 a.m., East­ern dis­trict of­fi­cers were called to the 700 block of North Rose St. for a shoot­ing.

When of­fi­cers ar­rived, po­lice said, they found a 28-year-old woman suf­fer­ing from gun­shot wounds. The woman was trans­ported from the Milton-Mont­ford neigh­bor­hood to an area hos­pi­tal for treat­ment, po­lice said.

A 23-year-old man checked into an area hos­pi­tal with gun­shot in­juries that of­fi­cials be­lieve were also con­nected to the Mil­tonMont­ford shoot­ing.
