Baltimore-area authorities were investigating four killings that occurred early yesterday and last night.

In Baltimore, three men were fatally shot in unrelated incidents in separate sections of the city.

The fourth killing occurred in Baltimore County, where a woman was found stabbed to death in a Woodlawn apartment.

Authorities said they had no suspects and knew of no motives in any of the cases.

About 10:40 p.m. at Reisterstown Road and Woodland Avenue in Northwest Baltimore, an unidentified man was found lying in the street with two gunshot wounds in the back, police said. He died a short time later at Sinai Hospital.

Shortly before 10 p.m. in Baltimore County, Woodlawn Precinct police responded to a 911 call for a woman stabbed to death in a unit at Town & Country Apartments in the 6700 block of Townbrook Drive off St. Lukes Lane.

The woman, whose name was withheld pending notification of family members, was pronounced dead at the scene, county police said. Her body was taken to the state medical examiner's office for an autopsy.

In North Baltimore early yesterday, Wilbur Cares, 18, a native of El Salvador, was talking on an outdoor telephone near his home about 2 a.m. when he was shot in the upper body at least once, police said.

Detective Irvin Bradley said Cares, who lived in the 3700 block of Greenmount Ave. in Waverly, died at 3:27 a.m. at Maryland Shock Trauma Center. Bradley said the victim worked at a restaurant and lived with his uncle and other relatives.

About 1 a.m., Northwestern District police were called to the 5000 block of Chalgrove Ave. in Pimlico, where they found an unidentified man, who had been shot, in the driver's seat in a car.

The body was taken to the medical examiner's office for an autopsy.
