Mayor Catherine Pugh says her office is aware of the rising crime and is taking steps to stop the violence.
“There’s too many illegal guns on our streets, absolutely too many illegal guns. So one of the things we’re doing with our young people this summer is teaching them how to be competitive without being combative. We’ve got to continue to talk with people in neighborhoods and community leaders are talking about that as well,” Pugh said.
Anyone with information about the shooting is urged to call police at 410-396-2221 or Metro Crime Stoppers at 1-866-7Lockup.MORE NEWS: Colonial Pipeline Back Up, But It Could Take Days To Return To Normal Due To 'Panic Buying' Of Gas
