A 33-year-old man was in serious condition from a shooting during an attempted robbery after a craps game in Northeast Baltimore Monday night, according to Baltimore Police.

Police responded to the area at about 7:18 p.m. and found a man lying in the median strip, shouting that he had been shot. He was taken to Johns Hopkins Hospital for treatment of gunshot wounds in the right shoulder and right leg, police said.

The victim had finished a game of craps with four other males in the rear alley behind the 1600 block of Ralworth Road in the Hillen community when another man pulled out a gun, according to police. The victim told police he surrendered some of his belongings but the suspect fired while he was running away.

The incident was one of four non-fatal shootings reported Monday. A 21-year-old man was shot in the right thigh by an unknown person in the 4200 block of Loch Raven Boulevard at about 3:30 p.m., police said. The victim ran and boarded a passing bus before he realized he was shot, he told police.

A 46-year-old man was in critical condition after he was shot in the back multiple times at about 6 p.m. at North and Pennsylvania avenues after what police described as an apparent argument over a bus pass.

And early Monday morning, police found a victim sitting on the steps in the 600 block of Pulaski Street bleeding from a large laceration across the abdomen and multiple gunshot wounds. He was taken into surgery at an area hospital where he remained in critical condition, police said. The shooting took place in the 2000 block of Eagle Street at about 1:40 a.m.
