Two men were killed early Sunday morning outside a restaurant on Reisterstown Road in Pikesville, police said, hours before a triple stabbing in Dundalk.

At 1:32 a.m., police received a report of a double shooting outside an Italian restaurant on the 1300 block of Reisterstown Road in Pikesville. At least one of the men died at the scene, police said, and they have no suspects in the case.

The restaurant is located at a busy shopping strip called The Alley Shops, where the stores cater to the area's large Orthodox Jewish community and sell jewelry, liquor, used goods and Russian books, as well as hair styling and tax consulting services. On Sunday afternoon, shop managers in the area said they had been surprised to hear of the killings because the area is usually safe. They said they believed the shooting occurred in the shared parking lot behind their stores.

Around 4 a.m., police were called to the scene of a triple stabbing in Dundalk, on the 1900 block of Jasmine Road. Two of the victims were flown out by helicopter and one was driven to an area hospital, police said. All three survived, police said. They have no suspects in the case.
