City police today were investigating two slayings.

The latest occurred about 9:40 last night on North Durham Street in East Baltimore.

Police said Patrick K. Douglas, 22, of the 3000 block of McElderry St., was talking to three men in the 1800 block of N. Durham St.

Witnesses said one of the men fired at least one shot that struck Mr. Douglas in the back as he ran. Then the gunman shot him two more times, witnesses said.

Mr. Douglas died at Johns Hopkins Hospital, police said.
