BALTIMORE - Baltimore City police converged on a liquor store in the 200 block of North Fulton Avenue on the city’s west side just before 11:00 Tuesday morning.
"The victim was shot in the groin area. He's currently in surgery at Shock Trauma. Detectives are working that scene as we speak. I don't have any information on suspect or motive," said Police Spokesman Anthony Guglielmi.
A back up unit racing to that scene met a green Volkswagon Passat at the corner of North Monroe Street and West Mulberry sending the squad car into a vacant lot and causing heavy damage to the front of the other vehicle.
Before officers could respond to that accident, yet a second shooting occurred just two miles away.
Police found a 17-year old woman and a 19-year old male victim suffering from gunshot wounds in the 3900 block of West Mulberry.
The unidentified female victim died a short time later
"Detectives are working the scene right now,” said Guglielmi, “They're asking anyone with information to possibly provide a motive. We're trying to figure out exactly what took place and what transpired for these individuals to be shot."
