Police charged a Baltimore man in connection to two shootings in Federal Hill early Saturday morning.

Twenty-four-year-old Steven Perkins of Annapolis was arrested and charged with attempted murder after he shot two men in the unit block of E. Cross Street around 2 a.m.

Police said the victims, identified only as a 23-year-old man and a 24-year-old man were not the intended targets. They were both taken to area hospitals for treatment of non-life threatening injuries.

Police caught Perkins as he tried to run from the scene. Police recovered a gun as he was taken into custody.
