Just after midnight Thursday morning, a 24-year-old man walked into an area hospital with a gunshot wound to his foot. The victim told police he was approached by an unknown man who shot him in the 1200 block of E. North Ave.

 

At 8:14 a.m., police were called to the 2800 block of Elgin Ave. in West Baltimore, where officers found a 21-year-old man who had been shot in the shoulder. The victim told police he was walking when a vehicle pulled up and a person inside fired at him. The man was taken to a hospital.
