Two men are fatally shot in city in incidents a few minutes apart

November 03, 2001|BY A SUN STAFF WRITER

Two men were killed last night in city shootings that occurred within minutes and blocks from one another, Baltimore police said.

At 6:30 p.m., police were called to North Pulaski Street and Clifton Avenue, where they found an 30-year-old man dead of gunshot wounds, said Sgt. Kevin Daniels, a police spokesman.

About five minutes later, police went to the Rainbow Carryout in the 2400 block of Reisterstown Road, where they found two men and a woman with gunshot wounds. Police did not know whether they had been shot in the carryout or if they had fled into the store.

One of the men died. The other two victims were taken to hospitals, Daniels said.

Because the shootings took place so close together, Daniels said police were investigating the possibility that they were related.

The victims' names were not immediately made public.
