Three-year-old girl among 8 injured in Baltimore shooting

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

The shooting erupted outside some rowhouses about 8:30 p.m. after the armed men converged on the group from different points, Davis told The Associated Press at the scene.

Davis said it was a premeditated act of retaliatory violence in response to a Labor Day weekend shooting in which a person was fatally shot and two others were wounded, including a pregnant woman. He did not immediately explain how investigators believed the shooting was linked to the earlier shooting.

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.

Isn't that nice. A 3 yr old and an 8 yr old. Terrible state of affairs but you know be careful what you wish for. They don't want the police profiling or conducting any other kind of proactive policing and this is what they get-shot children.
