Baltimore police were investigating two shootings yesterday, including one fatal.

According to police, a couple had an argument about 11 p.m. Friday. Police said the husband then left the house and got a shotgun out of his car. He knocked on the door of the house, and when his wife answered, shot her in the upper torso, police said.

Nadine Wilson, 42, was pronounced dead at Maryland Shock Trauma Center just before 1 a.m. yesterday. Her husband, Carlos James, 59, of the 800 block of W. Lexington St. was charged Friday with first-degree murder and use of a deadly weapon in the shooting.

In a separate incident, Towanda Harris, 40, of the 4800 block of Bowleys Lane was inside the Wah Hung Chinese Carryout restaurant on N. Montford Ave. just before 9 p.m. when she was approached by two men, police said.

One of the men pulled out a handgun and shot Harris in the stomach. Harris was rushed to Johns Hopkins Hospital, where she was in critical condition.
