Two men were shot to death in Baltimore over the weekend, and homicide detectives were investigating the fatal shooting of a third man Friday afternoon - all apparently unrelated slayings, city police said yesterday.

The latest reported homicide occurred about 10:30 p.m. Saturday in the 2500 block of Oswego Ave. when Jemel Carter, 18, of the 4100 block of Fords Lane, was shot in the head while talking to friends, police said.

After Carter was wounded, the gunman continued to shoot at the victim's friends before fleeing, police said. Carter was pronounced dead at the scene.

Also killed Saturday was Victor Council, 43, a resident of the Reisterstown Square Apartments in the 6600 block of Vincent Lane, who was shot once in the back of the head during an exchange of words with another man in the 1400 block of W. Baltimore St. about 12:15 a.m. Saturday, police said. He died that afternoon at Maryland Shock Trauma Center.

Shortly before 4 p.m. Friday, Lamont Brown, 20, of the 3300 block of Virginia Ave., was standing in the 4100 block of Park Heights Ave., near Quantico Avenue when someone shot him, police said. Brown was pronounced dead at Sinai Hospital, police said.

Metro Crime Stoppers at 410-276-8888 is offering a reward of up to $2,000 for an arrest and indictment in any of the slayings.
