Baltimore police pulled over a 22-year-old man for driving the wrong way on a street early Saturday when the victim opened up the door and fell out of vehicle, telling police he had been shot.

Lanell Ausby was taken to Sinai Hospital, where he was pronounced dead, police spokesman Sgt. Anthony Smith said. He was one of two homicide victims in the city overnight.

Ausby was shot multiple times in the torso around 1:30 a.m. in the 2500 block of Edgecombe Circle in Parklane, Smith said. He told police that he did not know who shot him.

Around the same time, Dawan Evans, believed to be 25 years old, was shot in the chest multiple times in the 600 block of Pitcher Street in the Upton neighborhood, police said.

After he was shot, Evans ran to the 1200 block of N. Freemont Avenue and collapsed. Evans was transported to Maryland Shock Trauma Center, where he was pronounced dead at 2 a.m., Smith said.

Police do not have a suspect or a motive in either homicide.

Around 10:45 p.m. Friday, a 31-year-old man was shot in the chest area near the intersection of Baltimore and Carey streets in Franklin Square, Smith said. The victim ran to Calhoun and Fayette streets after he was shot. He was then taken to a nearby hospital for treatment. Police do not have a suspect or motive.
