BALTIMORE — A 37-year-old man was killed early Tuesday, just feet from his mother's home in East Baltimore.

Police were called to the 500 block of North Highland Avenue just before 1 a.m.

Family members told WMAR-2 News there was a shooting and a stabbing in that neighborhood. They said another person was injured.

A woman said one of the victims ran into her house and said he was stabbed and so was her son. She ran outside and found her son laying stabbed and unresponsive. other neighbors said they also heard gunshots and saw a black car drive away.

When WMAR-2 News crews arrived, there were several streets blocked off including McElderry Street over to North Clinton Street. Detectives had marked dozens of pieces of evidence on the ground and were taking photos and bagging them.

No arrests have been made, however neighbors said they saw someone taken in for questioning.

Other neighbors on the block like Cierra Rivers said it feels like a real community in their area because they look out for one another. That's why they were shocked after waking up Tuesday morning to crime scene tape and dried up blood learning someone had been murdered right outside their doors.

"Not typical, it’s quiet, we don’t have none of this going on," Rivers said.

On North Highland near East Monument Street, an argument turned into a deadly shooting.

"I was laying down and I just heard gunshots and some hollering," a neighbor said.

"It's just quiet, this is your genuine family block. It's a bunch of kids so you want to feel comfortable ," Rivers said."

Loved ones of the man who died said Dominick, was his mother's last living child. She had two sons, one who died after being hit by a car and now one who died after someone took his life.

"To hear that now, that’s just disheartening, it’s just something that you would never think you would hear not coming from this block," Rivers said.
