May 02, 2010

Baltimore police are investigating three shootings that took place over the weekend, including the shooting of a 17-year-old who ran to the hospital.

Police responded around 4 p.m. Saturday to Bon Secours after a man with a gunshot wound to the thigh walked in to the hospital, according to Agent Donny Moses, a spokesman for the Baltimore Police Department.

The 17-year-old victim was walking on Monroe Street toward his house in the 1900 block of Fayette Street when a black vehicle, possibly a four-door Honda, with tinted windows drove up behind him, police said.

The victim said a male got out of the rear passenger door and shot him. The vehicle fled in an unknown direction, and the victim ran to Bon Secours, where he was treated and released.

On Saturday night, police responded to the 2200 block of Bryant Avenue where they found a 20-year-old victim with gunshot wounds to the left calf and right thigh, Moses said.

The victim told police he had been involved in an altercation with a group of males in a house in the 2400 block of Reisterstown Road. The victim was kept overnight at Sinai Hospital and later released, Moses said.

On Sunday morning, a 31-year-old male was shot in the back in the 4200 block of Pimlico Road. He was taken to Sinai Hospital, where he was treated and released.

Police have no suspects in any of the shootings, Moses said.
