Man shot near Mondawmin Mall, Druid Hill Park

December 14, 2013|By Justin Fenton, The Baltimore Sun

Homicide detectives were investigating an afternoon shooting that occurred Friday in West Baltimore in a residential area between Mondawmin Mall and Druid Hill Park.

The shooting occurred at about 3:45 p.m. in the rear of the 2200 block of Liberty Heights Ave. Homicide detectives were summoned to the scene due to the severity of his injuries, but as of Saturday morning, police said the victim remained in critical condition.

Last week, a 47-year-old man was fatally shot in the same neighborhood, a few blocks south in the 2800 block of Parkwood Ave. The Safe Streets anti-violence program had held a peace rally two days later — and was shut down temporarily by the Health Department on Tuesday.
