January 16, 2000|BY A SUN STAFF WRITER

A man was killed and a woman was seriously injured last night in a shooting inside a brick rowhouse in Southwest Baltimore.

Detectives were also at the scene of another homicide late last night in the 1200 block of N. Milton Ave. in East Baltimore. No details were available early today.

In the Southwest Baltimore shooting, police said the man and woman, neither of whom has been identified, were shot shortly before 10 p.m. in the 2200 block of Ramsay St.

The woman was shot in the face and ran about a half a block to the 400 block of Furrow St., where she was discovered by police sitting on a stoop.

Officers followed the trail of her blood from the stoop to the Ramsay Street rowhouse, where they found the man in an upstairs bedroom. Police said he appeared to have been shot multiple times.

The man was declared dead at the scene, and the woman was taken to Maryland Shock Trauma Center, where she underwent surgery last night.

Neighbors said the couple had lived in the house for several years.

Donna Insley, 43, of the 300 block of Furrow St., who identified herself as the injured woman's mother-in-law, said she "knew something bad was going to happen."

Police were investigating the shooting and said they knew of no suspects or motive.

The killings bring Baltimore's homicide total to 13 this year. Last year at this time, 11 homicides had been recorded.
