Two men were injured in separate shootings early yesterday in different parts of Baltimore, city police said.

In the first incident, two men in separate cars in Northwest Baltimore apparently got into an argument and began scraping each other's vehicles while driving. One man pulled out a gun and shot at the other man, who was hit in the cheek, police said.

The shooter's car broke down in the 3800 block of Park Heights Ave., where police responded about 12:30 a.m. and found a man walking in the street. Officers also said they discovered a handgun in the passenger seat of the car.

Seeing police, Nathaniel Ringgold, the shooting victim, drove to the scene and identified the arrested man as the one who shot him. The victim was taken to Sinai Hospital for treatment.

Roan Fulcott, 27, of the 5300 block of Cordelia Ave. was charged with handgun violations and attempted murder, police said.

The second shooting occurred about an hour later in Northeast Baltimore. Police received a report that someone had been shot in the 4800 block of Pleasant View Ave. about 1:45 a.m.

Officers found the victim, Michael Gardner, 27, lying in a back bedroom of a home in that block. He had been shot in the hip and left side. He was taken to Johns Hopkins Bayview Medical Center.

Police said the victim declined to cooperate with their investigation.
