One man was killed and two were severely injured in two shootings in East Baltimore during a snowstorm Thursday night, police said.

Two men were shot in the head around 9:15 p.m. at the intersection of North Patterson Park and East North avenues, police said. They were taken to a hospital, where one later died, police said in a news release.

In the other incident, around 6 p.m., a man was shot in the head in a car in the city's Belair-Edison neighborhood and taken to the hospital in critical condition, police said.

Officers initially responded to the corner of Kavon and Shamrock avenues for a report of a car crash. They found the victim and blood in the snow on the street and sidewalk near a vehicle, but no suspect, area commander Lt. Col. Dan Lioi said.

Homicide detectives were investigating both scenes Thursday night.

Anyone with information may call the Homicide unit at 410-396-2100.
