A man was fatally shot shortly before 7 p.m. in the Franklin Square neighborhood of West Baltimore, police said.

The shooting took place in the 1600 block of W. Baltimore St.

Police located a second victim at a West Baltimore hospital.

Homicide detectives are investigating.

In June, a 25-year-old, James Wright, was shot to death in the 1500 block of the same street as Friday night's shooting. That was the only homicide in the immediate area last year.
