Man found with wounds was shot miles away

A man found with two gunshot wounds in Roland Park late Tuesday had been shot elsewhere during a dispute between groups of people in separate cars, a Baltimore police spokesman said yesterday.

The victim, Darrell B. Jett, 21, of Northwest Baltimore, was wounded in the shoulder and head. Police said he was in critical condition yesterday at Sinai Hospital, contrary to earlier reports that he had died.

Police said Jett was shot while sitting in a car with other occupants at Northwick and Welbourne roads in the Hillen neighborhood of Northeast Baltimore. Jett was driven to North Baltimore, where he was found by police and paramedics sitting with two other men in a Ford Taurus on West Cold Spring Lane near Roland Avenue, police said.

Maj. Antonio Rodriguez, commander of the Northeastern District, said the victim was one of several people in the car who had gone to the Northeast Baltimore neighborhood to pick up a friend and got into "some type of argument" with people in another car.

A person in the other car shot at the vehicle Jett was in, Rodriguez said. Police said they were investigating the nature of the dispute. No arrests have been made.

Man dies after stabbing

One of two men stabbed Monday while trying to break up a fight outside a Northeast Baltimore home died hours later at Johns Hopkins Hospital, city police said yesterday.

About 11:30 p.m. Monday, two men were fighting on a front porch in the 4300 block of Glenmore Ave. when several people tried to separate them, said Agent Donny Moses, a police spokesman.

Two men who were among the group trying to intervene were stabbed by an unknown person in the crowd.

Both were taken to Hopkins, where one of the victims died about 4:15 a.m. Tuesday. The other victim was treated and released, police said. The men were not identified.

Woman abducted, robbed

A woman who parked her car in a Charles Village alley late Tuesday was robbed by a masked gunman who forced her back into her vehicle, made her withdraw money from a nearby automated teller machine, and then left her in downtown Baltimore, a city police spokesman said.

The 34-year-old woman, whose name was withheld, parked a 2002 Dodge Neon in the alley behind the 3000 block of St. Paul St. about 11:50 p.m. and was approached by the man, who pointed a handgun at her, said the spokesman, Agent Donny Moses.

The robber forced the woman to drive to a Bank of America ATM two blocks north, where she withdrew $500, and then ordered her to drive downtown, Moses said.

The robber left the victim in the 200 block of Park Ave. and stole her car. The man told the victim, who was not injured, that he was on drugs and needed money, Moses said.
