Northern District officers found two men on scene suffering from multiple gunshot wounds to the body.

One victim died on scene, while the other passed away at a hospital.

Nineteen minutes later, two more men were shot while driving in the 1200 block of Cliftview Avenue in East Baltimore.

The victims, ages 56 and 61 were each wounded in the chest. Their condition is unknown.
