Three men were killed in separate shootings over the weekend in Baltimore, the latest last night in the Westport neighborhood.

Shortly after 9 p.m., Southern District police investigating a report of gunfire in the 2300 block of Nevada St. found the body of Antonio Woodson, 22, of the 100 block of E. 33rd St., next to a chain link fence across the street from the Westport Homes public housing project.

Homicide Detective Thomas Pellegrini said Mr. Woodson had been shot several times with what appeared to be a large-caliber weapon and was pronounced dead at the scene. "He was sprayed all over," said the detective.

The body was taken to the state medical examiner's office for an autopsy.

David Jorey Thompson, 27, of the 1300 block of Robin Road in Pikesville, was shot in the back inside the Rainbow Carryout in the 2400 block of Reisterstown Road about 11:15 p.m. Saturday.

Police said Mr. Thompson, who was shot once with a large-caliber handgun, collapsed in the store and was pronounced dead at the scene. No arrest was reported.

Killed earlier Saturday was Anthony Vandiver, 32, whose last known address was in the 2700 block of W. North Ave.

Mr. Vandiver was wounded in the forehead about 10 a.m. in the 2300 block of Arunah Ave. He died at the Maryland Shock Trauma Center at 2:42 p.m.

Jared Wendell Parsons, 19, of the 2400 block of Winchester St., who was wounded in the thigh, was charged with first-degree murder after his wound was treated at Bon Secours Hospital.
