One man was killed and two others were wounded last night in two separate street shootings that occurred within an hour's time on different sides of Baltimore.

The fatal shooting occurred about 8 p.m. at the intersection of Garrison Boulevard and Dolfield Avenue. Police said that a man using a pay telephone was shot to death by an unknown gunman.

The victim, who was not named, was described only as a man in his 50s.

At 8:30 p.m., another shooting occurred in the 2200 block of East Eager Street, when an unknown man stepped out of a car and began firing at a motorist sitting in a nearby vehicle, police said.

The victim, a 37-year-old man whose name was withheld, was undergoing surgery early today at Johns Hopkins Hospital. Police said he was shot in the chin, neck and arm.

A bystander, Darryl Bolling, 22, of the 3300 block of Lawnview Avenue, was hit in the arm by a bullet, police said. He was listed in good condition at Johns Hopkins.

Homicide detectives said that they also had no suspect in the killing of an 84-year-old West Baltimore woman who was found dead in bed Saturday with her throat slit.

The victim, Nancy Goodwin of the 500 block of Cumberland Street, was found dead by relatives checking on her.
