Three men were fatally shot last night in separate incidents in Baltimore, police said.

About 11: 09 p.m., two men in a car pulled into a service station in the 3300 block of Erdman Ave. in Northeast Baltimore, said Lt. Ben Lieu of the homicide squad. A man who had been shot got out of the vehicle and collapsed. He was taken to Johns Hopkins Hospital. The other man, who also had been shot, died in the car, Lieu said.

Also, an unidentified man was fatally shot about 11: 07 p.m. in the 5100 block of Lodestone Way, about a mile east of the gas station, Lieu said.

He said investigators believe the men at the service station and the man on Lodestone Way were involved in the same incident. Early today, police were attempting to find out where they had been shot.

An unidentified man was shot in the head about 10: 15 p.m. in the 800 block of Newington Ave. in Reservoir Hill in Northwest Baltimore and died at the scene, said Lieu. No arrest had been made and police knew of no motive, Lieu said.
