At least one person was killed and three injured — including a 2-year-old boy — in a shooting in Baltimore on Saturday, police said.
Authorities responded near the intersection of Pennsylvania and Laurens Ave. after 6:00 pm Saturday night and found two adult males, one adult female and a 2-year-old boy killed, second Baltimore Police Commissioner Michael Harrison.
Police believe one or more gunmen opened fire, but do not know whether the intended targets were people in a vehicle or individuals standing on the sidewalk.
One of the adult males was pronounced dead at an area hospital, according to Baltimore police. The adult female and other adult male are listed in critical condition and the two year old is listed in stable condition.
Another person, a 6-year-old boy, was injured in a car crash near the scene, police said.
In a press conference Saturday night, Baltimore Mayor Brandon Scott made an impassioned plea for community members to come forward with any information.
“We’re talking about a dead man, a woman killed, a child affected, another child injured, another person affected by what?”
“Whoever did this tonight is a coward,” he said. “There are no ifs, ands, or buts about this.”
“We have to step up and be better for ourselves. We have to be better at stopping treating each other the way other people have treated us for many, many years in this country,” Scott added.
