Baltimore Police are investigating two shootings within only a couple of hours in Baltimore. 

The first shooting was in central Baltimore around 11:30 Wednesday night. Officers responded to the 1500 block of Madison Ave when they found a 20-year-old with gunshot wounds.

During an investigation, detectives determined the shooting occurred during a dice game. 

Two hours later, police were called to a hospital after reports of a walk-in shooting victim. When the officers arrived they saw a 29-year-old woman who had been shot, but they were not able to talk with her. 

The woman was rushed into surgery for non-life threatening injuries and no additional information was obtained.
