Two men wounded in city shootings

Police investigating unrelated attacks on East Side

May 01, 2010

City police are investigating two unrelated shootings late Friday and early Saturday on the East Side that landed two men in the hospital.

Agent Donny Moses said a 19-year-old man was shot at about 11:40 Friday night on the 3500 block of Shannon Drive when he was approached by two men whom he did not know. One pulled a handgun and shot him several times in the stomach. The victim was listed in critical condition at Johns Hopkins Hospital.

At about 3 a.m., a 23-year-old man was sitting on his bicycle in the 1600 block of E. 28th St. when a man approached on foot and, without warning, started shooting. The victim fled on his bicycle and called police after he realized he'd been shot once in the leg. He was also being treated at Hopkins hospital and was listed in good condition.

Moses said police believe the weapon in the morning shooting was also a handgun. He said detectives were investigating, but had no motives or suspects in either attack.
