One man was shot, another assaulted during two separate home invasions Wednesday night, a city police spokesman said.
Northeast District officers were called to the 3900 block of Yolando Road just after 6 p.m. for reports of a home invasion where they found a 28-year-old man shot in the chest, police spokesman Det. Donny Moses said. The victim was taken to Johns Hopkins Hospital, where he is in serious condition, he said.
A second, unrelated home invasion occurred about 8 p.m. in the 1400 block of McHenry St. in the Southern District, where a man was struck in the head with a handgun, Moses said. The incident was first reported as a shooting because the gun fired when the victim was hit, Moses said. The man was taken to an area hospital for injuries not considered life-threatening.
Police are searching for suspects in both incidents.
