Baltimore Police are investigating two weekend shootings and a homicide.

The shooting happened on Saturday night when Eastern District patrol officers arrived to an area hospital for a report of a walk-in shooting victim. Once at the location, officers found an 18-year-old man suffering from gunshot wounds to his eye, arm and leg.

He was immediately taken to surgery and, after some investigating, officers found out that he'd been shot while in the 1400 block of Barnes Street.

The homicide happened early Sunday morning at about 4 a.m. when patrol officers from the Southwest District arrived to the 2200 block of Eagle Street for a report of a shooting. Once they arrived, officers found a male victim suffering from multiple gunshot wounds.

He was taken to an area hospital where he later died.

Later Sunday evening before 5:30 p.m., a 24 year-old female walked into an area hospital with a gunshot wound to the leg. Investigators believe she was shot in the 5400 block of Fairlawn about five hours earlier, just after noon.
