BALTIMORE (WJZ) — One person was killed and two others injured in a shooting near a south Baltimore elementary school Monday afternoon, police said.
Officers were called to the scene in the 800 block of Roundview Road and 800 block of Bethune Road just after 3:30 p.m. That’s near Patapsco Elementary Middle School.
Police initially said two people died and a third walked into an area hospital for treatment of at least one gunshot wound.
The first victim, a 41-year-old man, died due to a gunshot wound to the chest. Another victim 28-year-old Detrell Garvin was shot in the head. He died from his injuries the next day.
The 27-year-old man who walked into the hospital is expected to survive, police said.
“I just talked to him earlier,” said Duck Jefferies.
Jeffries told WJZ he knew one of the victims and heard the shots.
“I was visiting my mother and I heard the gunfire, but you don’t think it’s somebody you know,” he said.
The incident happened just feet from where 31-year-old Keith Thomas was shot and killed Sunday morning.
On Friday, Police Commissioner Michael Harrison said his officers have made 15 homicide arrests this year.
“This department is committed to taking violent offenders and more particularly repeat violent offenders off of the streets,” he said.
So far in 2020, at least 35 people have been killed compared to 29 at this time last year.
Anyone with information about the shooting is asked to call police at 410-396-2100 or Metro Crime Stoppers at 1-866-7LOCKUP.
