One man is dead and several others were injured after multiple shootings in Baltimore May 15.
According to the Baltimore Police Department (BPD), 48-year old Antonio Jones, of the 3700 block of Saint Margaret St., was shot in the stomach in South Baltimore’s Brooklyn neighborhood around 4:00pm.
Jones was transported to an area hospital where he died from his injuries.
Prior to Jones being gunned down, another man was shot earlier in the day in South Baltimore’s Pigtown community. Police responded to a call for shots fired in the 1200 block of Sargeant St., around 12:15 p.m. but found no victim.
A short time later, a 38-year-old man walked into an area hospital and police were called. The man told police he had been shot on Sargeant St. His injuries are non-life threatening and he’s expected to survive.
