Baltimore Police Make Arrest After 22 Shot Over Holiday Weekend

BALTIMORE (WJZ)—Baltimore Police made a major arrest on Tuesday after Labor Day Weekend leaves 22 people shot in Baltimore.

An hour before announcing Baltimore’s new Public Enemy # 1 police say they arrested the woman responsible for a triple shooting that left a man dead.

First responders rushed to McElderry Park early Monday morning after investigators say 31-year old Marion Daughton opened fire killing a 34-year-old man and injuring two women– one of them pregnant.

Police say Daughton has a lengthy criminal record.

“The only time that Marion Daughton was not committing a crime was when she in jail,” said Baltimore Police Commissioner Kevin Davis.

Daughton was captured by police Tuesday, but they’re still looking for another suspect in the east Monument shooting and that has the community unnerved.

“You have to worry about your kids out here because they can’t even walk to the store,” said one resident.

The shooting along East Monument, is one of four triple shootings that happened in the city over the holiday weekend.

21 people shot in all, the youngest victim are a 4-year-old girl and 6-year-old boy hurt when they were  caught in the crossfire playing outside of their homes.

“I never really expected to spend my night on Saturday with a 4-year-old girl,” said Davis. ” Just a tiny girl as she picked out the color of her cast.”

That gunman is also still on the loose.

Police believe several people saw the shooting, but no one has come forward.

“To not have that level of cooperation at this point is frustrating to us.”

It was a witness that helped put Marion Daughton behind bars..

Now, investigators need more people to speak out in other cases

    This beast has been arrested so many times in the past for drugs, armed robbery and attempted murder, why is she even out on the streets? A: Have to give her more and more chances to change, so put her back into society until she finally kills someone. Liberal judges at their best, afraid to put blacks in jail because they do not want to be labeled racist.

    The black community made a decision, in the wake of the Freddie Gray incident, that their fanatic, insatiable hatred of police was so important that they wanted an end to the police “occupation” at all costs. The BPD and the city administration has pretty much given it to them by providing a less pro-active and more reactive police force — on top of the fact that a lot of officers have quit and have not been replaced.

    The result will be 100+ murders every year, probably forever. 90%+ of those murdered will be black. I do not see the black community protesting or rioting over the lack of police response to these black-on-black murders. Apparently it does not bother them that much. Maybe they think that the thugs will shoot each other to death and this will fade away — the problem is that it won’t. Or maybe they are like the Palestinians – a people so deranged with fanatic, murderous hatred for their “occupiers”, that all that matters is their hatred — their happiness is in seeing the hated “other” die, and if 100 of their own have to die to get rid of the hated “other”, then it is worth it.

    I don’t celebrate these extra deaths, but I certainly shake my head in disbelief at the hatred and stupidity that has led to them.
