Two unidentified men were fatally shot minutes apart early yesterday in separate sections of Baltimore, city police reported.

Officers responding to a 911 call of a man shot about 5 a.m. found the victim lying in the 1900 block of Guilford Ave., bleeding from multiple gunshot wounds to the upper body. Fire Department paramedics pronounced the man dead at the scene, police said.

About 30 minutes earlier, in an apparently unrelated crime, officers checking out a report of a shooting in the 2300 block of Loyola Southway found a man lying in the street with at least one bullet wound.

The victim was taken by ambulance to Sinai Hospital, where he died a short time later, police said.

Metro Crime Stoppers at 410-276-8888 is offering a reward of up to $2,000 for information leading to an arrest and indictment in either slaying.
