Hours after getting a 911 call reporting gunshots, police say, they found a man fatally shot in Northeast Baltimore's Lauraville neighborhood Tuesday morning.

The call notifying police of gunshots came in about 2:30 a.m. near the 4900 block of Morello Road, police said. A man whom police have not yet identified was found later about three blocks away, in the 2600 block of Southern Avenue. He was pronounced dead at Johns Hopkins Hospital about 8:30 a.m., police said.

Another man was shot in the face in Northwest Baltimore on Monday night and drove himself to the hospital with injuries that were not life-threatening, police said.

Police were called to the hospital about 9 p.m. and were told by the 34-year-old victim that he was sitting in his car when he was shot by an unknown assailant in the 5100 block of Queensberry Avenue.
