Labor Day weekend sees 22 shot in Baltimore from Friday afternoon to Monday

Violence in Baltimore came in bunches over the Labor Day weekend, with four triple-shootings breaking out in the city.

Twenty-two people were shot from Friday afternoon through Monday night, police said. At least three were killed, and four more were in critical condition Monday.

The victims included a 4-year-old and a 6-year-old. Police said a gunman left a dice game disgruntled on Saturday and opened fire indiscriminately on a crowd in Latrobe Homes.

The oldest victim was a 62-year-old woman, who sought refuge in a Wilkens Avenue pizza shop after a shooting claimed the life of a 29-year-old man.

T.J. Smith, the chief spokesman for the Police Department, said police needed the community's help to identify the shooters and take them off the streets.

Too many savages. But those gun laws are working to keep everybody safe.

The people asked for fireworks to celebrate the holiday weekend and that's exactly what they got. I'm just glad they chose to shoot each other.

Men consider Baltimore an easy score and then leave pregnant women to fend for themselves.

None included a "dirty, crooked, racist" white cop shooting a "Honest, hard working, heading home to his family" black man though. So, no news here people...keep moving along.
