Three people have been shot in the middle of the day in Baltimore's Penn North neighborhood, Baltimore Police told WMAR 2 News reporter BrianKuebler. 

Police responded to the 2400 block of Pennsylvania Ave just after 12:10 p.m. and found three men injured, one shot in the foot, one shot in the calf, and a third man shot in the torso. 

All three victims were taken to a hospital in the area and the 29-year-old man shot in the torso died from his injuries. The other two victims are 35 and 37 years old. 

Kuebler described a scene in which evidence cone markers were strewn about the street, and what looks like a bloody towel was visible on the sidewalk. "No Shoot Zone" is spray painted on the sidewalk on each corner of the intersection. People in the neighborhood said shots were heard around noon.

Police have not released the names of the men shot and have not released any additional details at this time.
