BALTIMORE — Baltimore Police said two men suffer from shooting injuries Thursday morning, on the city's Westside.

At 12:04 a.m., officers responded to reports of a shooting in the 2100 block of West Lexington Street. When officers arrived, they found a 35-year-old male suffering from multiple gunshot wounds to the body.

The victim was transported to an area hospital where he is listed in critical condition.

Around 45 minutes later, officers were called to an area hospital for reports of a walk-in shooting victim. There, they found a 31 year-old male suffering from a gunshot wound to the shoulder.

Police said the victim's condition is currently unknown.

According to investigators, the victim was at the corner of Sanford and Division Street, almost 2 miles north of the West Lexington Street shooting, when he was approached by an unidentified black male suspect, armed with a gun.

Once the suspect demanded the victim's property, the suspect shot the victim in the shoulder before fleeing the location.

Citywide shooting detectives are investigating the shootings and ask anyone with information to contact them at 410-396-2221 or Metro Crime Stoppers at 1-866-7lockup.
