Two men -- one of whom was wanted on a charge of attempted murder -- were killed in unrelated shootings Tuesday night, police said.

Larry McShine, 24, of the 2900 block of Kirk Ave. was shot in the left arm and upper body by an unknown assailant about 11 p.m. inside Jimmy's Place & Lounge in the 1600 block of Abbotston St. in Northeast Baltimore, said Detective Vincent Stevenson.

Stevenson said a male, 17, who was riding by on a bicycle at the time of the shooting, was hit in the back by a stray bullet. McShine and the wounded youth were taken to Johns Hopkins Hospital, where McShine died a short time later, Stevenson said. The teen was admitted, but his condition was not available.

McShine had been sought on a warrant charging him with attempted murder, Stevenson said. Details of that incident were not available.

About 7: 30 p.m., Leonard Rockwell, 22, of the 800 block of E. Chase St. was standing in the doorway of a rowhouse in the 1000 block of Hillman St. near Johnston Square when he was shot several times in the upper body and killed, police said.

A bullet went through a living-room window of the house and struck Marilyn Smith, 38, of the 900 block of N. Linwood Ave. in the left hip, police said. Smith was admitted at Johns Hopkins Hospital in stable condition.
