A fifteen-year-old is one of four victims in a spate of weekend violence in Baltimore that happened in a span of 24-hours.

Saturday afternoon around 1:40 officers responded the 2300 block of W. Lafayette Avenue for a shooting. When officers arrived they found two people shot. The victims, identified as 15-year-old Quindell Ford and 20-year-old Anthony Daniels were taken to an area hospital where they both died.

Police said the victims were sitting in a car when they were shot by an unknown shooter.

Authorities have a 20-year-old woman in custody for a deadly stabbing early Sunday just a mile away from the fatal double shooting.

Police responded to the 700 block of W. Lafayette Avenue around 2:30 a.m. for a report of a stabbing. When police arrived they found Christopher Carter, 19, with a stab wound to his chest.  He was taken to a hospital where he later died.

Investigators believe Carter and 20-year-old Elera Osaro were arguing inside of an apartment about money. The dispute became physical and Osaro stabbed Carter in the chest.

Officers were called to the 2300 block of Denison Street in Southwest Baltimore around 1:30 Sunday afternoon for a shooting.  

Investigators found a 20-year-old man shot multiple times.  He was taken to the hospital, but he did not survive.

"We're asking for the community to just keep their eyes and ears open, if you see something, if you hear something, we want you to give us a call," said Detective Jeremy Silbert with the Baltimore City Police Department.
