At least six people were shot in four separate incidents, including one fatal shooting, Saturday night, police said.
A man was shot in the stomach in the 400 block of N. Luzerne Avenue in East Baltimore at about 5 p.m., Detective Jeremy Silbert, a police department spokesman, said.
Several hours later, at about 9:30 p.m., and less than three miles away, another man was shot in the chest and killed in 1900 block of Washington Street, Silbert said.
At about the same time, another man was shot in the Northwest area of the city at Park Heights and Woodland avenues, several blocks south of Pimlico Race Course. The victim was shot in the back.
A half hour later, about 10 p.m., police were called to the 1300 N. Montford Ave. in East Baltimore, where Silbert said three people were shot. He did not have any information about their conditions but said police are looking into the possibility of a fourth victim who walked into an area hospital.
Shouldn't gun owners feel a slight twinge when they read stuff like this, knowing that all those guns started out legally owned and somehow slipped into the hands of criminals?
