Two killed in accidents in Randallstown

Two people were killed in separate apparent accidents involving automobiles on Liberty Road in Randallstown over the weekend, but only limited information was available from county police on the incidents. Yesterday, at about 2:30 a.m., a person driving in the 9300 block of Liberty Road crossed the center line and slammed into an oncoming vehicle, according to the county Police Department's dispatch office. The driver of the second vehicle was killed in the crash, police said. The names of the victim and the driver, the types of vehicles they drove, and other information about the crash, including whether charges might be pending against the driver, were not available. That fatal crash happened about two miles northwest of a fatality, also on Liberty Road, involving a pedestrian and an automobile Saturday evening. In that earlier incident, county police said, a man was fatally stuck by a vehicle as he crossed Liberty Road at Courtleigh Drive, at about 6:15 p.m. Saturday. He was pronounced dead at the scene by paramedics, police said. Yesterday, Baltimore County police did not release that pedestrian's name and could not offer an update on the investigation into his death.

Police seek gunman in fatal shooting Friday

Police said two men were in the 4900 block of Gunther Ave. near Pleasant View Avenue in the Frankford neighborhood shortly before 10 p.m., when at least one person fired multiple shots that struck both men. Police said one man, Andre Gay, whose age and address were not available, was killed and his companion wounded. Because the companion is a witness to a homicide, police declined to identify the wounded man. Metro Crime Stoppers at 410-276-8888 is offering a reward of up to $2,000 for information leading to an arrest and an indictment in the double shooting.
