City police on Sunday reported five shootings over the weekend, two of them fatal.

At about 12:30 a.m. Saturday, officers responding to a call about shots fired in the 500 block of Coventry Road in Southwest Baltimore found a man with gunshot wounds, police said. He was pronounced dead at an area hospital, police said. Anyone with information about the incident is asked to call homicide detectives at 410-396-2100.

About 9:40 p.m. Sunday, a man was shot in the 1300 block of North Spring Street, police said. The man was taken to an area hospital, but his condition was not available late Sunday, police said. Homicide detectives were not notified, which generally means the victim's wounds were not believed to be life-threatening.

At 1:48 a.m. Sunday, a bar fight in Southwest Baltimore spilled into the 200 block of South Pulaski Street, police said. Police, who said witnesses reported hearing gunfire, found a man with a "serious" gunshot wound. He was taken to a hospital, police said, adding that an investigation was under way.

At 1:52 a.m. Sunday, police were called to the 4200 block of North Charles Street in North Baltimore for a report of gunfire. Soon after, a man with a gunshot wound walked into an area hospital, police said, adding that he was in serious condition.

Police also say that a shooting at 7 a.m. Saturday in the 4000 block of Buena Vista Avenue near Hampden is being treated as "a suicide related to a domestic incident." However, until the cause of death is confirmed, they said the shooting was classified as a suspicious death.
