Baltimore police investigate 2 teens’ shooting deaths

BALTIMORE — Police are investigating the fatal shootings of two teenage friends in a southwest Baltimore neighborhood.

Officers found 15-year-old Dominic Perry suffering from gunshot wounds on Wedgewood Road on Sunday night. He later died at Shock Trauma.

After hours of searching, police say a relative found 15-year-old Anthony Tarbert’s body on the next block.

The shootings happened near where a city police officer was grazed by a bullet last month. Police say Tarbert stayed with the officer until paramedics arrived, but investigators don’t think the incidents are related.

Police spokesman Anthony Guglielmi says the teens have not had any contact with law enforcement and they appear to be good kids.
