BALTIMORE - (MINS) In less than one hour Monday night, three people were shot, in two separate incidents. They happened less than a mile apart from each other. 

Police have not indicated any connection.

One of the victims has died, and another is suffering grave injuries so serious, due to their severity homicide detective were called to the scene. By the time this is published, he may very well be dead.

"Monday night's shooting in front the Red Fox Liquor store appears to be the sixth person shot on that block in two years. Four have died!"

Incident 1

At 9:16 p.m. Baltimore Police responded to the corner of Pennsylvania and N. Fulton avenues. Officers found a 33 year-old man suffering from at least one gunshot wound directly in front of the Red Fox Liquor store.

Unconfirmed reports state the man was shot in the face.

After being transported to an area hospital, the man was pronounced dead a short time after arrival.

The incident happened at busy, high traffic intersection.

A series of crime scene markers could be seen trailing down the sidewalk and onto the street.

Despite the victim possibly being hit only once, it is unclear whether the shooter may have fired more rounds but missed.

A Very Violent Block

Monday night's shooting in front the Red Fox Liquor store appears to be the sixth person shot on that block in two years. Four have died!

In February a man was shot on the 2200 block of N. Fulton Ave.

August 2013 also saw a man shot next to the elementary school on the exact same block.

Along with those incidents, a shooting resulting in a triple murder happened there -- nearly to the date -- two years ago.

Police spokesman Det. Jeremy Silbert stated the investigation was active and ongoing and at the time of this writing there were no known suspects or motives.

In the report below, recorded live on scene, while still at the first incident, the chaos surrounding the dispatch of the second shooting of the night can be clearly heard.

While The Baltimore Spectator was still on scene at the homicide located at Pennsylvania and N. Fulton avenues, police could be seen running to their cars then speeding off, lights and sirens as a call for another shooting could be heard coming over their two way radios.
Police were dispatched to the vicinity of N. Monroe St. and W, Lafayette Ave. -- only a mile away -- in Sandtown-Winchester at 10:09 p.m for reports of a shooting.  

Upon arrival officers found a man suffering from multiple gunshot wounds throughout his body, laying on the sidewalk. He was listed in critical conditions, but homicide detectives were requested due to the severity of his injuries.

A witness describes seeing the victim [name withheld pending confirmation] girlfriend desperately trying to render first aid to the man shot by placing pressure on the bleeding wounds.

Shortly afterward, about a block away on Harlem Ave., officers found a 19 year old man who had been shot in the shoulder. He was stated to have non-life-threatening injuries, and was in stable condition, according to police.

Like the earlier incident, police have given no known motives, nor named any suspects in the shootings, nor have the victims been identified.

In 2014 Baltimore Police solved less than half of the homicides committed in the city.
