Detective Jeremy Silbert said in a statement, at approximately 11:00 p.m. Friday, officers were called to the 900 block of Bennett Place for a report of a shooting. When officers arrived, they were unable to find a shooting victim.  A short time later, a 22-year old man arrived at an area hospital with a gunshot wound to his stomach. Investigators believe the victim was in the 900 block of Bennett Place when he was shot.

Meanwhile, officers were on patrol around 5:15 Saturday evening when they heard gunshots coming from the 400 block of E. Patapsco Avenue. A short time later, a 22-year old man arrived at an area hospital with a gunshot wound to his stomach. Investigators believe the victim was involved in an argument before he was shot.
