About 11 p.m., a man, 25, was in the 1800 block of Braddish Ave. near North Avenue when he was shot in the left leg and back. The victim got into his car and, with a passenger, was driving to Bon Secours Hospital when he lost control of the car and crashed into a wall on Baker Street. The passenger drove the victim to Bon Secours. He was transferred to Maryland Shock Trauma Center and listed yesterday in critical condition.
