Police Investigate Baltimore Area Shootings

BALTIMORE (WJZ) — Several weekend shootings have the police hard at work.

Ron Matz reports the number of homicides for this year doubled in a single weekend in Baltimore County.

A man was shot and killed at a Parkville gas station early Sunday morning, and another man was found Saturday near Annapolis Road in Lansdowne in a field.

In Baltimore City, the police are investigating six separate shootings from this weekend, including a fatal shooting on Cliftview Avenue. One of the victims in the double shooting Sunday died from a gunshot wound to the chest. This is the city’s 23rd homicide so far this year.

So far, there are no arrests in any of the shootings.

    This is sad. What the hell are our city officials getting paid to do? Our taxes are being raised, crime is rising to the top, but all they can focus on is what the next man is doing with his personal life. Think about it…. you guys are sitting here making excuses cause you do not know how to get the job done. You need to get focused on the real issues here!!!

    • Tony Big Baloney

      Good advice, What are you thinking blaming the city officials for what parents & the individual should be demonstrating. Civil disobedience, lack of respect for other people’s properties & life begin at home. Don’t wait until it lands at city hall to pull the blame game -race card. Take responsibility for your own actions fools.

  • Richard Perry

    and they want to legalise drugs Baltimore should worry about there crime rate,instead of trying to change the name of a mountain in western MD !

    Good advice1,

    Please read closely. The first paragraph involves the doubling of homicides in Baltimore COUNTY not city. Yes, it is sad but just remember that every one of the SHOOTING victims died with their precious second amendment rights intact.

    • Wink Fusco

      Here in MD – no one’s 2nd amendment rights are intact. Md is one of the few State’s that deny the average citizen the right to carry a weapon. While almost every other State in the Union has “shall issue” permit laws where the law abiding citizen can apply for a permit, with a background check and then exercise the right to bear arms, only the wealthy, or well connected, or “businessmen” can carry.

      These cancers & garbage came from just down the road in the city darling & by the way, f….k U & your 2nd amendment rights. Guns belong in museums.

  • Jim

    Richard Perry,

    Please note the first paragraph refers to Baltimore COUNTY.

  • Chrissy


    Read the last paragraph, It refers to Baltimore City.

    There is too much money being spent on animal abuse, divert the money to the homicide or gun control division. Animal lovers can pay animal taxes and fees to register their pets to eleviate the lack of money.

    Baltimore City – county!!! Whats the difference it’ the same cesspool.

  • D. Bos.

    I like how all you county people continually trash Balt. City when if it wasn’t for your preppie kids and your business men husbands coming down here to finance the drug trade which leads to robberies and shootings, so if you don’t mind, BALT. COUNTY KEEP YOUR FAMILY MEMBERS HOME.. THANK YOU

      Stupid people make stupid statements. That statement is STUPID!

  • GCF

    This is a direct result of the projects in the city being imploded years ago. They moved all of the animals out to the counties into government subsidized housing and this is what you get. Thanks kurt Schmoke

  • Chichi

    This is a result of City cutbacks, and the lack of knowledge of what is truly happening to our children. They are not supporting programs to help our children, but instead they are finding ways to support their own pockets getting fatter.

    Folks, this is not a city nor is it a county thing. It’s a Maryland thing. No one is better or worse than the other just different. It is not where you live but HOW you live. All of this verbal bashing accomplishes just one thing, separatism! You take the strap out of the hands of the parents, Prayer out of the schools and convert the state of Maryland into a prison state (which it IS) while all of the time offering NO HOPE for the youth.. Then we get what our hands call for, a younger and smarter breed of criminal.. Our faults collectiuvely!!!!!!

    • Tony B

      I totally agree with you, prayer should have been kept in schools and if you did not want to attend then that should be you choice, but everything starts at home, how many families are having dinner together the table and praying together? Teaching these kids morals and respect instead of the smell of crack or weed throughout he house, different men running in and out, we as parents must take responsible for our kids, teach them right from wrong.

  • Tony B

    This is a test

  • sheriff willie

    Tony B. That is the best response of the day.

    Its sad everyday I check the news ( wjz13.com) back home in Baltimore to hear all the crime that goes on out there. When will it stop……

  • big joe sheriff

    Yournightmare, Nah, don’t watch ten black hoods running up down a court playing dunk the punk. Can’t relate to it. Some football & of course no baseball not because there’s no Niggas playing cause they’re to stupid to play the game but their 1st cousins the Latinos. Niggas in lighter skin.

  • sheriff willie

    Niggas don’t play basketball, they jump around like the monkeys they are back in the jungle.

  • pigeon

    The ignorant comments made are the very reason our cities, counties, states and world are the way they are. Bigots on both sides of the fence!
    To rshell & Tony B – more true words were never spoken.

  • sheriff willie

    Pigeon,….R U a stool pigeon, or is you a stool you fool?

    • Citizen

      You are an angry man, Short Willie…

  • hello

    Wow it is such a shame to see how people talk to each other. That young man Vincent was killed 2 blocks from my home. It is a shame that people have to turn to gun’s. When I was a kid you would get into a little fight with someone and then they became your long life friend. One should not judge, because just as easily as that young man was killed it could be your brother, or son, or anyone in your family for that matter. It does not matter in today’s world were you live. You can live in a home that cost 3 millions dollars and still have crime and killings. Know one is safe anymore, anywhere that they are. I feel sorry for anyone who losses a child like this. You people on here say such hurtfull words and you did not even know this person. Such a shame….
