RadioOnFire.com – At least four of the 17 people shot in Baltimore over the weekend died. Homicide detectives are now looking for the culprits and motives in those shootings.
The most recent shootings occurred in the northern and western parts of the city.
In one of the recent shootings, police were on patrol around 10 p.m. Sunday when they heard shots fired from the 500 block of Tunbridge Road. Police found a 40-year-old man with gunshot wounds to his body. The man was taken to an area hospital, where he later died.
Just before midnight, police were called to the 1900 block of West Mulberry Street for reports of a shooting. Once at the scene, police found a 22-year-old man suffering from a gunshot wound to the back. Police say the man is being treated at the hospital.
Police are also trying to figure out if an officer was the target of a shooting in the Park Heights community. Police say three men were shot in the 3000 block of Spaulding Avenue.
One of the 17 shooting victims is a 2-year-old boy. Just after midnight Saturday, police responded to the 500 block of West Martin Luther King Boulevard for reports of a shooting. Initially, police could not locate a victim until they were called to an area hospital where a toddler was brought in with a gunshot wound to the stomach.
Police Commissioner Michael Harrison said Saturday that the toddler was shot while inside a car during a suspected road rage incident.
Police are asking the public to help them find those responsible in all the shootings from the weekend.
