A dispute over a card game left a man dead in Baltimore, and that wasn't the only homicide police were investigating Thursday morning. 

The first incident of the night happened just after 12:30 a.m. in the 1900 block of West North Avenue. When officers got to the scene, they found a 47-year-old man with stab wounds. The man was taken to Shock Trauma but was pronounced dead shortly after arriving. 

Homicide detectives found out the man was assaulted and stabbed during a card game dispute, but they have not released any other information surrounding the murder. 

Only a couple hours later, police were called to the 500 block of Denison Street after reports of gunfire. When they got to the Southwest Baltimore street, they found a 33-year-old man with gunshot wounds. He was pronounced dead at the scene.
