BALTIMORE (WJZ) — A Baltimore man faces murder charges after shooting three people in two separate incidents.

The first happened in the 2100-block of W. North Avenue.

Police say Ricky Horton fatally shot a man in the head and torso and then fled the scene in a getaway car.

A friend of the victim also suffered gunshot wounds. He survived.

Investigators say Horton then shot a woman six blocks away on Presbury Street, declaring “if you’re not blood, you die.”

Horton, who also goes by the name “Purple,” faces a maximum of two life terms plus 88 years if convicted.
