November 20, 2010|By Arthur Hirsch, The Baltimore Sun

A 29-year-old man was shot and killed and two other men were wounded Friday night in West Baltimore, police said.

Baltimore police Detective Jeremy Silbert said officers were called about 10:30 p.m. to the 1500 block of Poplar Grove St., in the Northwest Community Action neighborhood, and found three men with gunshot wounds. He said it was not clear if the 29-year-old, whose identity has not been released, died at the scene or at a hospital.

The other two men, a 26-year-old and a 22-year-old, were each shot once and were being treated at a hospital. Their identities also were not released, but Silbert said they were expected to survive.

Police had no suspects and have yet to determine a motive for the shootings.
