Friday afternoon, someone shot two people on North Avenue.

Thursday night, three people were shot off Bel Air Road.

Many are scared for their safety. “Crime is all around you. It hit home,” Davarn Leach from West Baltimore told WJZ Investigator Mike Hellgren. He worries about his own children and many other young people. “Their pain is my pain. I grew up and got my life together… certain kids are less fortunate.”

City leaders are also reacting to the growing number of young people involved in crime.

A 16-year-old is among those charged with carjacking a police officer this week.

Another 16-year-old suspect is charged with killing Marco Nunez, a beloved Fells Point bouncer.

A 12-year-old and a 13-year-old even broke into a car and went on a joyride Thursday from West Baltimore into Baltimore County.

“Much of what you see are social issues that have broken down over the years and what you see is a manifestation of that. That question really has to be directed at the parents of the children who committed those acts—and why they committed those acts and why did that happen and how did they get to that point in their lives,” Commissioner Michael

Harrison said Friday. He also noted, “What we need is for people to take control and know where their kids are at night. We need people to help us help them make better life decisions.”

Mayor Brandon Scott also addressed juveniles and crime. “First and foremost, we need people to be responsible for their children. Let’s start there,” the mayor said. He noted the city has plans for programming to keep young people occupied this summer.

“16-year-olds shouldn’t be out in Fells Point at that hour of the night alone. 12-year-olds shouldn’t be out doing the things. We have to have community checks…starting with family, friends, people who know these young people.”
