Baltimore Police are investigating three shootings that happened late Saturday night, once of which left six people injured.

The first shooting happened at about 9:10 p.m. when officers were called to an area hospital to investigate a walk-in shooting victim. When they arrived, they found a 20-year-old man suffering from a gunshot wound.

Investigators believe that the victim was shot in the 3600 block of Reisterstown Road.

The second shooting happened at around 9:45 p.m. when, once again, police were called to an area hospital to investigate a walk-in shooting victim. Officers were informed by hospital personnel that the victim had been rushed to surgery. However, according to witnesses, the victim walked into the hospital and collapsed. At the moment, the adult female’s identity is unknown.

The third, and final, shooting happened at about 11:50 p.m. when officers were called to the 4000 block of Penhurst Avenue to investigate a shooting. When officers got to the scene, they found several non-fatal shooting victims and, while on location, they were also informed of additional victims that were seeking treatment at an area hospital.

Citywide Shooting detectives took control of this incident, just like they did for the others, and found out that all of the victims had been at a backyard barbeque when an unknown suspect entered the yard and opened fire. As a result, six people were wounded.

The victims are a 17-year-old woman who was shot in the leg, a 22-year-old woman that was shot in the ankle, a 22-year-old woman that was shot in the thigh, a 22-year-old woman that was shot in the ankle, a 23-year-old man that was shot in the ankle and a 23-year-old man that was shot in the hip.

All of the victims’ injuries appear to be non-life threatening.

However, detectives and officers are searching the neighborhood and interviewing witnesses, but anyone with information on any one of these shootings is urged to contact Baltimore Police Department Citywide Shooting detectives at (410) 396-2221.
