BALTIMORE (AP) — Baltimore police say one man was killed in a double shooting in Southwest Baltimore.

Police say officers found a man shot and wounded in a car and another man wounded on a nearby sidewalk around 1:15 a.m. Saturday. The man in the car was taken to a hospital, where he died. The other man was expected to survive.

The slaying brings the city’s homicide total for the year to 202. It’s the second consecutive year there have been more than 200 slayings in the city after the total dipped to 197 in 2011. The city has one of the highest per-capita murder rates in the nation.
