Three men were shot in separate shootings Tuesday night in Baltimore, according to police.

The first, who appeared to have shot himself, died, police said.

The conditions of the other two men were not immediately available, police said.

Shortly before 7:30 p.m., officers responded to a home in the 900 block of Iris Avenue in the East Baltimore neighborhood of Orangeville to find a man dead from a gunshot wound to the head, according to Sgt. Valencia Nock, a police spokeswoman.

Homicide detectives who responded to the scene believe the shooting was self-inflicted, Nock said.

At 9:17 p.m., officers responded to the 3400 block of Piedmont Avenue in the Hanlon-Longwood neighborhood, a few blocks west of Mondawmin Mall, for a report of gunshots and located a man shot multiple times in the body.

The man was taken to Sinai Hospital.

At 9:54 p.m., officers responded to the intersection of 10th Street and East Patapsco Avenue, south of the Port of Baltimore's Fairfield area, and found a man shot multiple times in the chest.

No further details were immediately available.
