Baltimore police are investigating three shootings in the city on Friday night and early Saturday morning, including one that involved a female victim who says she was shot several times inside her vehicle while waiting at a red light.

Detective Jeremy Silbert said the 36-year-old woman, who is expected to survive, was shot multiple times in her upper body around 2:42 a.m. in the 3200 block of E. Northern Parkway in Northeast Baltimore.

The victim told police that she was stopped at a traffic light when a person pulled up next to her in an unknown vehicle and fired several shots.

The vehicle fled the scene, police said. The woman was transported to an area hospital.

City police responded to two other shootings. Around 9 p.m., officers found a 27-year-old man in the 800 block of Bridgeview Road in Cherry Hill after he had been shot multiple times. The victim, who was taken to an area hospital, is expected to survive, police said.

At 12:42 a.m., officers responded to the 2800 block of Wegworth Lane in the Lakeland neighborhood to respond to calls about a shooting, but they could not find a victim, Silbert said. Shortly afterward, a 25-year-old man arrived at an area hospital with a gunshot wounds to his shoulder and leg.

Silbert said police continue to investigate the shootings.
