Police are investigating two nonfatal shootings that occurred within an hour of each other Thursday night.

The first happened in the 3300 block of Dorchester Ave. in Northwest Baltimore about 9 p.m. when police say a 23-year-old man was the passenger inside an unlicensed cab. Police say another vehicle pulled up alongside the car and fired inside the car, striking only the victim once in the chest. The man was transported to an area hospital, police said, and his condition is not known.

About an hour later, a 22-year-old man was shot several times in the waist area in the 2100 block of Homewood Ave. in East Baltimore. An officer responded to shots fired in the Midway neighborhood and found the victim, who was taken to an area hospital and is in stable condition.

Police have made no arrests in either incident.
