Mass shooting in Baltimore on ‘Brooklyn Day’

An 18-year-old woman and a 20-year-old man were killed after a mass shooting in Baltimore, Maryland, in the early hours of Sunday morning. Baltimore Police Department Acting Commissioner Richard Worley told reporters there were a total of 30 victims during a news conference at the scene. Three of the injured victims are in critical condition. All the victims were adults.


The deceased female victim was pronounced dead at the scene and the male was pronounced dead at a local hospital a short time later. The shooting took place shortly after 12:30 a.m. at a block party in the Brooklyn Homes area on the south side of the city, Worley said.

Hundreds of people had gathered in the area for an event called ‘Brooklyn Day,’ a witness said. Another witness told FOX45 News that they heard between 20 and 30 shots. “They just kept dating.” No arrests were made immediately after the shooting and police asked anyone with information to come forward to help investigators track down the ‘cowards’ responsible for the shooting.

Nine victims were transported by ambulance and 20 victims walked to area hospitals with injuries from the shooting, Worley said. “We located a deceased adult female at the scene and an additional nine victims were transported from the scene to area hospitals. Additionally, we had another 20 victims entering hospitals throughout the region,” he said.


‘Our detectives are currently working on an extensive crime scene. The two deceased victims we have are adults. We have three other victims who are in critical condition. Our hearts and prayers go out to the families and friends of the victims, as well as to the community and our entire city.’

Hours after the shooting, several officers remained on the scene, working behind police tape amid densely populated two-story apartment blocks. Folding tables and plastic cups were scattered around the scene, apparently left behind as people fled the gunfire. The police have called any eyewitnesses or anyone who knows anything to come forward. They have yet to determine a motive for the shooting, but said they are reviewing video footage and speaking with witnesses to try to identify the suspects.

Baltimore Mayor Brandon Scott was also at the crime scene Sunday morning. He said: ‘All of Baltimore mourns the lives lost here and our hearts go out to those who are still recovering. This investigation is ongoing and our homicide detectives will continue to work until we find out what happened here.


“But what we do know is that this was a recklessly cowardly act that occurred here that permanently altered many lives and cost two people their lives. And I want those responsible to listen to me and to hear me very clearly. We won’t stop until we find you and we will find you.’ “Until then, I hope that with every breath you take, you think of the lives you took and you think of the lives you impacted here tonight,” Scott added. Authorities said the crime scene was extensive and it will take detectives a while to work through it.

“Treat him like family,” Scott said. ‘How would you want people to treat it if you were in mourning, if this was your neighborhood, if this was an event in your community where this happened? We want you to treat it that way because that’s how we have to treat each other as Baltimoreans.

The shooting comes amid gatherings across the country ahead of the July 4 holiday. Elsewhere, a shooting in Kansas left seven people with gunshot wounds and two more victims hospitalized after being trampled as people ran out of a nightclub early Sunday morning, police there said.


The violence comes as federal prosecutors in Baltimore this week touted their efforts to reduce violent crime in the city. Police have reported nearly 130 homicides and nearly 300 shootings so far this year, though that’s fewer than the same period last year. Authorities have vowed to crack down on repeat violent offenders.
