BALTIMORE — Baltimore Police arrested two suspects on Tuesday and charged each with attempted murder for two separate shootings.

The first shooting happened on June 22, 2020, at a little after 12:40 a.m., when officers were called to the 700 block of N. Collington Avenue for a shooting.

Upon arrival, they found a 34-year-old man, who was suffering from gunshots to all of his body.

The victim was transported to an area hospital where he was immediately rushed into life-saving surgery.

Eastern District Detectives obtained an arrest warrant on November 23, 2020, where they named 32-year-old Lawrence Allen, of the 4200 block of Shamrock Avenue, as the suspect.

On Tuesday, at around 11:00 a.m., Allen was stopped in his vehicle at the intersection of Coldspring Lane and Greenspring Lane, and taken into custody. He was transported to the Eastern District for questioning and then Central Booking, where he was charged with 1st Degree Attempted Murder.

He is now being held without Bail.

The second shooting happened on November 26, 2020, at around 11:20 a.m. A 44-year-old man was walking his dog in the 2500 block of Lauretta Avenue when an unknown male suspect got out of his car and exchanged words with the man.

As the two argued, the victim continued walking his dog while the suspect followed behind him. The suspect then pulled out a handgun and shot at the victim.

The victim fled as he was not struck.

Western District detectives investigated this incident and quickly identified the suspect.

On Tuesday, at around 8:15 a.m., officers arrested 59-year-old Dwayne Brown, of the 2500 block of Lauretta Avenue, without incident.

Brown was transported to the Western District, where he was interviewed and then transported to Central Booking where he has been charged with 1st Degree Attempted Murder.

He remains at Central Booking and is being held without bail.
