Investigators say the victim, a 45-year-old man, was shot four times in the back at Germantown Avenue and Wister Street just after midnight. He died at the scene.

One person is in custody Thursday morning after a late-night shooting in Olney that left a teen in critical condition. It happened on North Second and West Champlost streets.

Another shooting happened in the Hunting Park section of the city.

Police say a man was shot in the arm and back on the 500 block of West Wyoming Avenue. He's in stable condition. Officers are looking for a suspect.
