Two people were killed and one person seriously injured during three separate incidents last night in Baltimore.

Shortly before 5 p.m., an unidentified man was shot four times at the corner of Monroe and Baker 6streets in West Baltimore. The victim drove himself to the emergency entrance of Liberty Medical Center, which closed in August. Paramedics rushed him by ambulance to the Maryland Shock Trauma Center, where he was in critical condition last night.

A half-hour later in Northeast Baltimore, police found a 21-year-old man shot in the head in the 3500 block of Cliftmont Ave. The man, discovered in a parked sport utility vehicle, was dead at the scene and his body might have been in the vehicle for 24 hours, according to police.

In Northwest Baltimore, a man in his late 30s was stabbed about 9 p.m. in the 4000 block of Park Heights Avenue near Shirley Avenue. The victim had been arguing over a woman, police said.

He died at Sinai Hospital.
