Police Blotter is a sampling of crimes from police reports in Baltimore City and Baltimore County.

Baltimore City

Southwestern District

Shooting: Police were awaiting the results of an autopsy to determine whether the death of a 27-year-old man was accidental or a homicide. The man, whose name was withheld, was in the basement of a house in the 2700 block of Gibbons Ave. with other people about 9:30 p.m. Saturday and reportedly playing with a handgun when it discharged and shot a bullet into his head, police said. He died at Johns Hopkins Hospital.

Northwestern District

Shooting: A 20-year-old man reported he was standing outside a house in the 3000 block of Woodland Ave. about 10 p.m. Friday when an occupant of a passing car shot him in the upper right thigh. He was treated at Sinai Hospital.

FOR THE RECORD - A Police Blotter item in yesterday's Maryland section incorrectly listed the city police district of a shooting death in the 2700 block of Gibbons Ave. It is in the Northeastern District.
The Sun regrets the errors.
