Double shooting kills 1 near Hopkins Hospital; bullet breaks hospital window


    25-Year-old killed in double shooting overnight

    BALTIMORE (WBFF)-- An overnight double shooting in southeast Baltimore left one man dead. Meanwhile, a "stray bullet" also shattered a 6th-floor window at a Hopkins cancer building.

    There is no confirmation that the two incidents are related, but the double shooting happened on May Street at Central, around the corner from the Johns Hopkins Hospital complex.

    "During an early morning incident a stray bullet shattered [a] window on the 6th floor of the [Skip] Viragh [Outpatient Cancer] Building," said Johns Hopkins Medicine spokesperson Ken Willis. "No injuries were reported. The Baltimore Police Department is investigating the incident, and any questions about the investigation should be directed to the police."

    The Viragh building is at Broadway and Fayette.

    At 12:01 a.m., officers responded to the 1400 block of May Street for a shooting.

    On scene officers found 25 year-old Nicholas McPherson suffering from gunshot wounds to the head. McPherson was transported to Johns Hopkins Hospital where he died a short time later.

    While officers were on this scene, a second call for a shooting came out nearby in the 1500 block of Mulliken Court. There, officers found a 20 year-old man who had been shot in the left foot.

    That victim told officers he was in the 1400 block of May Street when he was shot.

    Homicide detectives responded out and assumed control of the investigation. Anyone with information regarding this murder is asked to call detectives at (410) 396-2100. Anyone wishing to remain anonymous is asked to call Metro Crime Stoppers at 1-866-7LOCKUP.
