A 56-year-old man was shot to death in the bathroom of a West Baltimore house where he was visiting Friday night, the first of three murders and a murder attempt reported in the metropolitan area during the weekend.

Another man was found dead in his car on Clifton Avenue shortly after midnight, and a third was stabbed fatally at about 12:10 p.m. yesterday during an argument on North Castle Street.

No suspects have been arrested.

The stabbing victim, 26 years old, was pronounced dead on arrival at Johns Hopkins Hospital. Police said he and another man were standing on the sidewalk in the 1000 block of North Castle Street when an argument erupted. The victim slapped the suspect, who then stabbed him in the chest. The dead man's name has not been released.

Bobbie Franklin Penn, 56, who lived in the 4000 block of Gelston Drive, was apparently shot through a window of a bathroom in a house in the 5100 block of Williston Street just after 10 p.m. Friday. Mr. Penn was pronounced dead on arrival at St. Agnes Hospital.

And Hervine Omar Williams, 28, of the 2900 block of Hilton Road, was found dead in the driver's seat of his car, with a gunshot wound to the head. A police officer on patrol found him just after midnight. The car's engine was running, and the driver's side door was open.

In Essex, Grady White Elkins, 29, (no address available) told police he was held up in the 1000 block of Orville Road at about 1:20 a.m. yesterday. One of two assailants was about 13 and riding a bicycle, Mr. Elkins said. He told police he handed over $85, then ran toward Eastern Avenue, but one of the two robbers shot him in the back. He was flown to Shock Trauma, where he was reported in stable condition yesterday.
