BALTIMORE (WJZ) — Baltimore police are investigating a shooting in southeast Baltimore.
Police said the shooting broke out around 4 p.m. in the 6200 block of Boston Street, in front of a children’s playground.
A neighbor said he heard rapid gunfire right outside his house and saw some of the victims on the ground.
Baltimore Police Commissioner Michael Harrison was on the scene and said four people were shot, and one is in critical condition.
He said there were upwards of 30-35 shell casings on the ground, and a pair of shoes is marked off as evidence.
“This is a very calculated and very deliberate shooting with the number of rounds, the number of casings on the ground. These individuals need to be removed from the streets of Baltimore.”
The other three victims’ conditions are unknown.
Two of the victims were taken to the hospital in personal vehicles while the other two were taken by ambulance.
