Five people were hospitalized, two of them with critical injuries, after a gunfight early yesterday in Northwest Baltimore, police said.

Northwestern District patrol officers witnessed an exchange of gunfire at Park Heights and Belvedere avenues shortly after 2 a.m., said Agent Ragina L. Cooper, a police spokeswoman. Three men and a woman were shot and another man was stabbed, Cooper said.

Police recovered three handguns at the scene, Cooper said.

She said detectives were working yesterday to determine the cause of the dispute and whether any of the injured were bystanders.

"They're still in the process of sorting through what relationship exists between the parties, if any," Cooper said. Police had filed no charges by yesterday afternoon, she said.

Cooper identified the victims as:

Anthony Lewis, 18, of the 3600 block of Oakmont Ave., stabbed in the upper torso. He was in critical condition at Sinai Hospital.

Glen Ford Monez, 35, of the 200 block of Forest Heights Drive, shot in the upper torso. He also was in critical condition at Sinai.

Robert Crowder, 19, of the 700 block of Beaverbrook Road, shot in the right knee and left hip. He was in good condition at Sinai.

Donovan Williams, 36, of the 200 block of W. North Ave., was shot in the left foot and was in good condition at University of Maryland Medical Center.

Angel Greene, 27, of the 300 block of Thorndale Ave., was shot in the right hand and right shin. She was treated at Liberty Medical Center and released.
