BALTIMORE (WJZ) — This past week in September has left at least 47 shot throughout the city leaving 12 dead since last Sunday, according to Baltimore police.

In northeast Baltimore, officers arrived to find two women suffering from gunshot wounds Saturday evening. A suspect surrendered moments later.

Detectives arrested 24-year-old Dandre Woods-Bethel, now he is facing murder, assault and weapons charges.

The victims, a 46-year-old and a 23-year-old, both died from their injuries.

UPDATE: 50 People Shot, 15 Fatally, In Baltimore In A Week

It’s the latest in a string of shootings in Baltimore, 47 people were shot and 12 dead all within one week.

On Friday, a 14-year-old was shot in the Coldstream-Homestead Montebello community. The teen was pronounced dead at the hospital. Police found a gun on the victim.

“It makes me sad,” said Mark Washington, with Coldstream-Homestead-Montebello Community Corp.

Washington wrote a letter to the police asking for help.

“Any loss of life is tragic, but the loss of a child to the violence of the streets of Baltimore is a call to our community to try and redouble and triple our efforts to do more,” he said.

Others injured include a 26-year-old shot in his back, an 18-year-old shot in his stomach and a 25-year-old man with a gunshot wound to his leg.

On Saturday morning in the 1700 block of West North Avenue, two more shooting victims — one man dead and a 30-year-old woman being treated at the hospital.

The violence began during Labor Day weekend.

Baltimore City’s police union tweeted Tuesday saying,”The police department is still 500 officers short, leaving little time for proactive policing.”

“The fact that it happens far too often in Baltimore City suggests that we as a community, as a city, are not doing enough,” Washington said.

    Why isn’t the National Felon League protesting this? Nobody in their right mind wants to be a cop in Mosby’s Baltimore.

      ANTIFA is what they claim to be against.
      BLM, the group, are Marxist Terrorists attempting to overthrow our Capitalist Republic, while bathing themselves in Social Justice robes. Instigators travel from city to city trying to spark unrest ahead of this election. The Left lies and distorts everything claiming that everything is about race. It is about power, greed and self enrichment, with politicians only seeking to promote themselves and out virtue signal each other. Defund the Politicians.

    #CityinCrisis
    You can thank the failed greedy corrupt democrats for our decaying violent city! The armed hoodrats own all the streets of this city. Keep voting in the democratic trash and enjoy your violent ghettos you sure deserve them!

    What you are watching is Trump’s success at bringing back law and order

    He can blame anyone he wants to for his failure, but he promised to bring back law and order.

    He failed.

    The state with the most murders & violent crime per capita is Alaska. It is a GOP state. Trump did not fix it either.

      I bet your favorite flavor is window, isn’t it.

    Black lives matter to me so why don’t they matter to the Black citizens of Baltimore? You need to take back your city from the gangs and drug dealers & all those people with guns- anyone who buys drugs supports the violent criminals- “a little weed” IS a big deal when it ultimately funds violence. It’s not church choirs and law abiding citizens out there with guns. Parents need to wake up and keep kids home-there is NO EXCUSE for a 14 year old child with a gun.

    Purple is right the Dems didn’t make that law & order promise Trump did, Anything Trump fails at he blames the Dems for it’s laughable.

  5. Terrence says:

    Ridiculous to blame Trump for this! How many Democrat mayors, city council members, states attorney’s have all been promising to get tough on crime for the last 10 years! They have let the bloodshed continue and now you blame Trump? Get real!

  6. Larry Espey says:

    Trump gets all the blame he is the so called president of all 50 states not just the red ones all of them He does not get to pick and chose which ones make him look good. ALL cities have crime problems not just red or blue ones.

    If “agitators” and “antifa” “BLM” and whatever you want to make up is causing the problems then why hasn’t Trump dealt with them? He just lets it go on because he does not know what to do and blames local officials. In fact think about it he is using the violence he is doing nothing about to scare his foolish followers that “those violent thugs” are going to take over their suburbs. Trump is a joke an ineffective pathetic joke who is fueling violence to scare rural and suburban white voters because most in cities & minorities will not vote for him anyhow.

  7. Tyree says:

    Trump is not to blame for what is going on in the city, it is the doings of the white liberal who through their failed polices have allowed black deviant behavior to flourish. Make no mistakes about it what’s going on now started many years ago with these liberals pushing their policies on us. But, the truth of the matter is we hold a level of blame, because the white liberal sold it and we bought it..hook-line and sinker.

  8. chrissfarmer says:

    Larry is exactly right. If there is one thing Republicans and especially Trump excel at, it’s blaming someone else for their own shortcomings. Look at the long term, murders in B’more decreased during the Obama admin and started going up again under Trump. Coincidence? Nope! Unrest has gone up in the last 3.5 years, it’s Trump and his poor handling of COVID that has led to economic problems from many. Yes, he brags about the stock market like that is more important, but most of us do not own stock and derive income from that. That is a privilege for the top 10% who own most stocks,

    There are plenty of large cities led by Republicans that have crime problems it is not uniquely a partisan problem. Oklahoma also has a major violent crime problem and is WAY above the national average with Republicans Governor and Mayor of Oklahoma City. Worst in the country in murders? Missouri w/ Republican Governor. Trump did run on the promise he would bring back law and order, He also ran on the promise he would be too busy working to play golf. Lies are lies, folks!

    First of all I have not heard the Democratic leadership of Baltimore City ask for help from either from the State or the Federal Government. That has to happen before either can intervene because the City is incorporated. And second don’t confuse the antifa and blm looting and rioting with the drug gang related homicides in the City. You are intentionally clouding the issue and it is an old ruse that just won’t work anymore. Chrisfarmer and Larry Espey, if you are not actually the same person, are merely anti-trump operatives, anti 2nd amendment agitators, and frankly not very good at making a coherent fact based argument about the real issue.
