RadioOnFire.com - There is now a $15,000 reward for information leading to the arrest and conviction of the person responsible for the shooting of two children and three adults on Friday night in south Baltimore.
The Bureau of Alcohol Tobacco and Firearms and Metro Crime Stoppers are contributing the money to make up the reward.
“ATF stands shoulder-to-shoulder with Baltimore Police Department as we work to identify armed criminals preying on our communities,” said ATF Baltimore Special Agent in Charge Rob Cekada. “We will work tirelessly to investigate and incarcerate those persons responsible for these senseless shootings. ATF will not take the pressure off of armed criminals until Baltimore neighborhoods can be free of violence.”
The shooting occurred on Friday night in the 1900 block of Ramsay Street.
Medics were called to the scene and transported an adult female who was shot in the neck, a 1-year-old shot in the leg and a 2-year-old shot in the torso to area hospitals, officials said.
Two adult males walked into area hospitals seeking treatment for non-life-threatening gunshot wounds, officials said. Detectives believe the two men were wounded during the incident.
All of the shooting victims are currently in stable condition at area hospitals.
On Saturday, police Commissioner Michael Harrison said officers are looking for a silver or gold sedan seen speeding away from the scene.
Anyone with information is asked to call Metro Crime Stoppers as 1-866-7LOCKUP or police at 410-396-2221.
This afternoon, Mayor Bernard C. "Jack" Young will join Harris and other officials in a door-to-door canvas of the neighborhood. Officials hope it will help potential witnesses come forward.
