In a tragic event, one man is dead and four others are injured, including two children, after a shooting and a crash in Baltimore.
According to Baltimore Police Commissioner Michael Harrison, officers received an alert from ShotSpotter for multiple rounds of shots fired at around 6:39 p.m. near the intersection of Pennsylvania Avenue and Laurens Street in the city’s Upton district.
The man standing on the street was fatally shot and died at the hospital. Additionally, another man standing on the street was also shot and is in a stable condition.
Meanwhile, a woman in a car was also critically injured from a gunshot wound and drove the vehicle down the street before crashing into a pole. Two children were in the car at the time: a 3-year-old boy who sustained critical injuries from the crash, and a 2-month-old boy who is in critical but stable condition.
At this time, police do not know who the intended target was. Baltimore City police released an update early Sunday morning regarding the conditions of the victims of Saturday’s fatal shooting.
The 3-year-old boy is in stable condition, while the 2-month-old infant is in critical but stable condition. Neither of the children were shot, but both were traumatized from the crash that occurred after the driver was shot.
The man who was killed was 43 years old, and the injured man is 65 years old. The driver of the car is a 23-year-old woman and is in stable condition.
