The Baltimore police are now investigating eight shootings, one on Friday night, six on Saturday and a double shooting Sunday afternoon.

The shooting that occurred on Friday night happened at 10:51 p.m. when officers were called to the 2200 block of Harford Road because of a reported shooting. When officers arrived, they found two victims: a 30-year-old man and a 40-year-old man and both were suffering from gunshot wounds to their legs. They were both taken to area hospitals for treatment.

The second shooting, which happened at 3:10 a.m. on Saturday, took place at the 3800 block of Old York Road and when officers arrived to this location, they found a 40-year-old man suffering from gunshot wounds. Officers learned that the incident occurred in the 600 block of 38th Street.

The victim was taken to an area hospital for treatment and, after Citywide Shooting detectives did more digging, they found out that the victim was shot after a dispute over an illegal dice game.

The third shooting happened at 3:15 a.m. when officers were called to the 2900 block of Edgecomb Circle to investigate a reported shooting. When they arrived, they came across a 30-year-old man, who was suffering from a gunshot wound to the arm.

Citywide Shooting detectives took control of the investigation and learned that the victim was offering car rides for money when he picked up the suspect and was robbed at gunpoint and shot. The suspect ended up taking his vehicle, which is a 2016 Chevy Equinox and fled the area. He was also taken to an area hospital for treatment.

The next shooting happened a little before 5:30 a.m. when police were called to the 1100 block of Cherry Hill Road West to investigate a reported shooting. When officers arrived at the location they found a 32-year-old man suffering from a gunshot wound to the arm. He was taken to an area hospital for treatment.

Just before 2 p.m. in the afternoon officers responded to the 2300 block of Harford Road for another shooting. There, a 23-year-old mam, later idenfitied as Vuai Green, was found shot. He was transported to a hospital where he later died. The incident was just two blocks over from where Friday nights double shooting occurred. 

Later Saturday evening, just before 7:30 p.m. officers found an unresponsive 63-year-old man in the 200 block of S. Hilton Street suffering from a gunshot wound. Medics pronounced the man, James Williams dead on the scene.

Saturday's violence concluded just after 11:15 p.m. Officers were on a traffic stop near the 2500 block of W. Baltimore Street, when they heard the sound of gunfire. A 27-year-old male was later found shot and then taken to a hospital.

On Sunday at around 3 p.m, two males ages 53 and 56 years of age walked into an area hospital with non-life threatening gunshot wounds. The victims reported being shot near Greenmount and North Avenues.
