BALTIMORE – Five people were shot in two incidents Monday night, including a double shooting in East Baltimore that was being investigated by homicide detectives.

In the first incident, a group of people were standing outside about 7:40 p.m. in the 4100 block of 10th St. near Brooklyn Homes when a gunman approached and opened fire, striking two men in the stomach and a third in the pelvis, according to police spokesman Donny Moses. They were taken to Maryland Shock Trauma Center, he said.

One victim, a 26-year-old, had already been treated and released from the hospital as of Tuesday morning. Another victim, a 25-year-old, was listed in critical condition, and a third, 28, was listed in serious condition. As of Tuesday morning, police had no leads on suspects or motives.

About 10 p.m., police responded to a shooting in the 700 block of E. Preston St. in the Johnston Square neighborhood, near Greenmount Cemetery. Once there, police found a woman shot in the leg and a man shot in the abdomen. Their conditions were not known Monday night and had not been updated Tuesday morning, but police said homicide detectives were notified.

A crowd gathered across the street as medics treated the victims, with some frantically making phone calls to determine whether the victim was a relative. When ambulances pulled away, the crowd split into two groups — those heading to the hospital those and returning to bed.
