Two men were killed early yesterday in apparently unrelated shootings in North and Northeast Baltimore, police said.

In the first homicide, Northeastern District police officers responded about 1:15 a.m. to a call reporting shots fired in the 6000 block of Amberwood Road and found a man sprawled near a front door. He was suffering from multiple gunshots to his torso, said Officer Nicole Monroe, a police spokeswoman.

The man was taken to John Hopkins Hospital, where he was pronounced dead at 1:55 a.m. Police have identified the victim as Anthony Douglas, 36, of an unknown address, Monroe said.

About 2:30 a.m., Northern District officers responded to a report of shots fired in the 4700 block of Alhambra Ave. and found a man lying in the street and a trail of blood leading to another shooting victim, Monroe said.

The man found in the street was pronounced dead at the scene at 2:48 a.m. He had been shot several times in the head and body. Police have not identified him.

The second victim, found at nearby Cold Spring Lane and Alhambra Avenue, was taken to Johns Hopkins Hospital, where he was listed in critical condition but expected to survive. The unidentified 27-year-old was shot several times in the right leg and midsection, Monroe said.
