A gunman walked out of an East Baltimore alley yesterday evening and sprayed the area with gunfire, wounding three men, one fatally, police said.

The shooting in the 1200 block of N. Collington Ave. may have resulted from a dispute over a drug deal, police said.

Windell Windley, 27, of the 2300 block of Garrett Ave. was shot in the chest as he attempted to flee, said Officer Robert W. $H Weinhold Jr., a police spokesman. He collapsed near Collington Square and soon died at Johns Hopkins Hospital, the spokesman said.

Donald Hart, 30, of the 2700 block of E. Monument St. was shot in the buttocks and was treated at Hopkins and released, Officer Weinhold said.

He said Joseph Loyal, 35, of the 2200 block of Mura St. was shot in the left thigh. Mr. Loyal was treated at Church Hospital and released.

The gunman, who witnesses saw emerge from the alley, escaped on foot and remained at large, police said.

At the scene, police found several spent .25-caliber cartridge cases.

In an unrelated incident, police last night arrested a 17-year-old youth and were holding him in connection with the shootings of his girlfriend and another woman during a domestic argument in an apartment in the 1000 block of Richwood Ave.

Police said Rosalyn Thompson, 40, of the Richwood Avenue address was shot three times and was listed in serious condition at Johns Hopkins Hospital.

Rachelle Boyd, 17, of the same address was shot at least six times and was listed in serious condition at Hopkins, police said.

The relationship of the two victims was not known.

Shortly after the 6:20 p.m. incident, Northern District police had the name of a suspect and were searching for him.

The suspect, a resident of the 2700 block of W. Fairmount Ave., turned himself in at the Southwestern District station house several hours later. Charges against him were pending.
