Baltimore police are investigating the death of a man as a homicide in one of three unrelated shootings and a double stabbing that occurred between Christmas Eve and early Christmas morning.

Police have identifed the victim as Keith Lee Robinson, age 23. He was pronounced dead at the scene of the shooting, in the 4100 block of Ridgewood Ave. Police originally said the shooting took place in the 4400 block of Granada Ave.

Two other men, victims of unrelated shootings, were taken to local hospitals Saturday morning.

"At this time we don't think that any of them are related," said police spokesman Det. Jeremy Silbert.

Police first responded to the 1000 block of McKean Ave. at 5:56 p.m. Friday to investigate a double stabbing. One man was stabbed in the chest. A second man was stabbed in the stomach. Both men were transported to local hospitals. It is unclear what precipitated the stabbings.

Police were later dispatched to the 1500 block of N. Caroline St. at 11:30 p.m. where a 23-year-old man was shot in the leg. He was taken to a local hospital. His condition is unknown.

At 3:10 a.m., a 27-year-old man was found shot in his side at the 400 block of E North Ave. He was taken to a hospital for treatment. His condition is unknown.

Police have no motive or suspects in any of the incidents, according to Silbert.
