BALTIMORE (AP) -- Baltimore's homicide toll for 2015 continues to mount after reaching what Police Commissioner Kevin Davis called a "sad" milestone of 300 over the weekend.

Less than four hours after announcing that slaying, police reported another homicide Saturday night.

They say a 22-year-old man was shot in the chest and died a short time later. Police have not announced the man's identity.

The 300th homicide recorded earlier Saturday was the stabbing death of a 27-year-old man.

This is the first time since 1999 that the city has recorded 300 homicides. In 2014, the city saw 211 killings for the year.
