Baltimore police investigators continue to probe three separate fatal shootings Friday, including one of a man who was involved in a police pursuit, authorities said yesterday.

Officer Donny Moses, a police spokesman, said he had no new information on the death of a man shot by police after a car chase ended in the 2400 block of Greenmount Ave. about 3 p.m.

Police said the man charged at them with his car before they feared for their safety and shot him. Police have not released his identity, pending notification of his family.

About 7:25 p.m., another man, Jamel St. Clair, 18, of the 1800 block of N. Collington Ave., was found in the 2000 block of E. North Ave. with multiple gunshot wounds to his torso. He was pronounced dead at Johns Hopkins Medical Center.

Police said their preliminary investigation revealed that another man approached St. Clair. After a brief conversation, the unknown assailant brandished a gun and fired at St. Clair.

No description of the gunman was released by police yesterday.

The third man shot to death was found by police in the 5200 block of Cuthbert Ave. at 10:50 p.m. He was brought to Sinai Hospital, where he was pronounced dead at 11:18 p.m.

"We have no witnesses, no motive and no suspects," Moses said of the case.

Anyone with information is asked to call the Police Department's homicide division at 410-396-2100 or the Metro Crime Stoppers at 1-866-7-LOCKUP.
