Two men were shot to death in Baltimore on Tuesday night within 30 minutes of each other in separate and apparently unrelated incidents, police said, adding that an arrest has been made in a killing that occurred early Sunday.

About 9:30 p.m. Tuesday, Torrey Darling, 26, was found lying in the 3900 block of Ridgewood Ave. in Northwest Baltimore by police responding to a report of a shooting.

Darling, of no fixed address, was taken by ambulance to Sinai Hospital, where he died about three hours later.

Shortly before 9 the same night, police responded to a shooting in the 1600 block of Presbury St. in West Baltimore and found Eric Smith, 39, whose home address was not available, slumped in a car and bleeding from at least one gunshot wound.

Smith died a short time later at Maryland Shock Trauma Center.

On Tuesday night, members of the Regional Warrant Apprehension Task Force entered a house in the 700 block of N. Payson St. and arrested Farrakhhan Jenkins, 21, of that address on a warrant charging him with first-degree murder.

Jenkins is accused of shooting Antwon Torain, 35, whose address was not available, about 1 a.m. Sunday during an altercation outside a club near Jenkins' home.

Jenkins was being held without bail at Central Booking and Intake Center.
