BALTIMORE — Two people are dead and two are injured following four Sunday shootings on the city's west-side.

The first incident happened at 12:45 p.m., when Western District officers were dispatched to the 300 block of N. Mount Street. On the scene, they found 27-year-old Kyeon Gaither suffering from gunshot wounds to the head.

He was taken to an area hospital where he was pronounced dead.

Fifteen minutes later, less than three miles away officers in the Southwest District responded to the 1800 block of Rosedale Street, where they found a 30-year-old male suffering from a gunshot wound to the leg.

The victim was taken to an area hospital and is expected to survive. Police say the man is uncooperative, and they've been unable to gather any information on a possible suspect.

Both incidents come less than 24 hours after a 25-year-old man died after being shot in the head in Northeast Baltimore.

Late Sunday night, at 8:56 p.m., police arrived to the scene of a shooting in the 1500 block of West Fayette Street and found 16-year-old Markell Hendricks suffering from a gunshot wound to the head. He later died at the hospital.

A short time later, officers were notified of a walk-in shooting victim at an area hospital. There, they found a 32-year-old male victim suffering from a gunshot wound to the thigh. He told police, that he was shot while walking in the area of Gilmore and West Fayette Street.

Investigators believe that the shooting incidents between the 16-year-old and 32-year-old man are related.

Detectives are asking anyone with information to contact Metro Crime Stoppers at 1-866-7lockup.
