28 Shootings, 9 Fatal, Over Memorial Day Weekend In Baltimore


baltimore5It was a violent weekend in Baltimore after a surge of shootings – some deadly – across the city. Police say 28 people were shot, 9 of them killed over this weekend, adding to the record-breaking violence.

The shooting didn’t stop on Monday night after a 9-year-old boy and another man were both injured by gun fire in the 2900 block of Arunah Avenue. Police say the child was shot in the leg and another man suffered a graze wound to the head.

The Memorial Day weekend was riddled with gun violence across Baltimore City, from one district to the next, leaving 26 people shot and 9 dead.

Councilmember Mary Pat Clarke links the violence to a city still reeling from weeks of unrest.

“It was an earthquake kind of time and i think we’re still dealing with the aftershock,” she says.

Since the beginning of the year, 108 people have died due to violence in the city.

  1. Thanks partially to Bloomberg for his policy of discontinuing “Search And Frisk.”
    The criminals fear nothing any longer! Crime in NYC is on the rise BIG TIME.

  2. To #1

    1) Bloomberg is no longer the Mayor of NYC
    2)Bloomberg advocated for “Stop and Frisk”
    3) This bit of news is about Baltimore, not NYC, and inferences of crime predictions in NYC cannot be drawn from this story.

  3. I wonder if this is because the police are afraid to do their jobs for fear of getting arrested like the 6 police officers in the Freddie Gray case.

  4. Where’s the outcry?? Of course there was none since it was not police against them
    #4- maybe but this is Baltimore city we’re talking about – lots of drugs and gangs there.
