Baltimore police were investigating the shooting of a man who was wounded yesterday morning in East Baltimore. The victim - whose identity was not available but who was described as young, possibly in his teens - was shot in the chest and shoulder about 8:50 a.m. at Rutland Avenue and Oliver Street in the Broadway East neighborhood. He was taken to Johns Hopkins Hospital and was listed in critical condition. Within minutes of the shooting, city police posted word of the incident on the department's Twitter page, which officials say could become a more common way of disseminating information.
