A man was injured in an overnight shooting and two men were stabbed in separate incidents Saturday, Baltimore police said Sunday.

Just after 3 a.m. Sunday, police found a 21-year-old man suffering from a gunshot wound to his leg at an East Baltimore hospital, said Det. Jeremy Silbert, a spokesman for the Baltimore Police Department.

The man had been walking in the 1200 block of Homewood Ave. when he was shot by an unknown person, Silbert said. The victim then hitched a ride to the hospital. Police do not have a suspect or a motive in the shooting.

Police are also investigating two separate stabbings that occurred Saturday night, Silbert said.

Baltimore police responded just after 8 p.m. to North Avenue and Smallwood Street, where they found a 39-year-old man unconscious and suffering from a stab wound to his back, Silbert said.

A preliminary investigation revealed that the victim had been involved in an argument in the 2100 block of Windsor Ave. when he was stabbed in the back. He then ran to North Avenue and Smallwood Street, where he collapsed. The suspect fled the scene, Silbert said.

Police said another adult male was also treated at an area hospital around 7 p.m. Saturday after he was stabbed in the 2700 block of Biddle Street. Police said they had no suspect or motive in the stabbing.
