BALTIMORE, Md. - Baltimore detectives are investigating two separate shootings that happened Monday evening about an hour apart.
Officers arrived immediately at the scene of the 700 block of Mello Court after receiving a ShotSpotter alert from the area. They were able to act quickly and chase potential suspects on foot. They later stopped a car at a traffic stop with a potential suspect inside and were able to recover a gun.
A 23-year-old man was wounded from the shooting and was later transported to an area hospital for treatment.
Officers on patrol were approached by a woman who told them that her car was shot at.
Luckily the woman was not injured, but a few moments later officers were dispatched to an area hospital for a reported 27-year-old walk-in shooting victim who was receiving treatment for a gunshot wound.
Detectives believe the man and woman were inside of the car, in the 200 block of N. Eutaw Street, when they say at least one shooter shot at them.
