BALTIMORE (AP) – Police say three gunmen shot and wounded eight people including a 3-year-old girl on an east Baltimore street Saturday night, adding that the suspects fled and the victims are all expected to survive.
Baltimore Police Commissioner Ken Davis tells The Associated Press the shooting erupted outside some rowhouses about 8:30 p.m. after the three armed men converged on the group from different points.
Davis, who went to the scene, says the shooting was a premeditated 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 hasn’t explained how investigators believed the shootings were linked.
Davis says the victims could have recognized the gunmen but authorities haven’t immediately been able to identify the suspects and are still searching for them hours afterward.
