A young women was found shot to death and another badly wounded in Herring Run Park off the 4100 block of Harford Road in northeast Baltimore.
The women both appeared to be in their early 20s, but their names were not available. Neither woman was carrying identification, police said.
The dead woman was shot once in the head. She was found naked from the waist down, wearing only a white T-shirt, bra and white socks.
The injured woman, who was shot once in the neck, was taken to Johns Hopkins Hospital, where she was in critical and unstable condition. She was fully clothed when found. Police said the woman alternated from unconsciousness to hysteria and shock before being taken to the hospital. However, she apparently was able to tell investigators that the shooting occurred about 3 a.m.
A woman who lives near the park entrance told police that she thought she heard shots about 2:50 a.m.
A man taking a walk along Herring Run about 8 a.m. found the victims in a wooded area at the end of a park access road, police said.
Police are asking anyone who saw a vehicle or people leaving the park about 3 a.m. to call the city homicide unit at 396-2100.
