Baltimore Police: 3 Gunmen Shoot, Wound 8 In Attack

Three gunmen shot and wounded eight people including a 3-year-old girl on an east Baltimore street Saturday night, police said, adding the suspects fled and the victims were all expected to survive.

The shooting erupted outside some rowhouses about 8:30 p.m. after the three armed men converged on the group from different points, Baltimore Police Commissioner Kevin Davis said at a news conference

Davis, who went to the scene, said the shooting was a premeditated act of retaliatory violence in response to a Labor Day weekend shooting in which a man was fatally shot and two women were wounded, one of them pregnant. He did not immediately explain how investigators believed the shootings were linked.

Davis said the victims could have recognized the gunmen but authorities haven't immediately been able to identify the suspects and were still searching for them hours afterward.

According to the commissioner, one of the armed men emerged from an alley and two others ran down the street, stopping just short of the victims before they opened fire. He added that the 3-year-old girl and her father were standing a slight distance away from the others and that the child was not an intended target.

Oh well. The police aren't appreciated in those areas so the police aren't going to be proactive. The people grew it now they have no other choice but to accept it as the new normal.

This is how the liberal media wants black people to live and is why they created the false narrative of white cops shooting innocent black people.

Police don't want to get in trouble so they are staying away from those areas. Al sharpton wanted it.
