We are following every single piece of evidence which will eventually lead us to those responsible. We continue to ask our community to come forward, even with the slightest bit of information, you never know what may be the final piece of the puzzle that brings this to a successful and safe end,” said Fire Chief Tiffany Green.READ MORE: 12-Year-Old Girl Hospitalized After Baltimore Hit & Run
