A night of chaotic violence in Baltimore included two deaths in a triple gunfire, a barrier in East Baltimore after a woman was shot, and another shooting in the southwest.
A total of five people were shot around the city in about two hours.
Police were first called to the Lennard District and Grantley Street, in the Edmondson District, around 6:40 PM.
They found three victims – a 20-year-old man, a 20-year-old woman, and an unidentified woman. They were all shot.
The death of the unknown woman was announced at the scene.
The other two were taken to hospitals and the 20-year-old was declared dead there.
Later, police swept across East Oliver Street, in East Baltimore, between Milton and Lakewood.
They said this happened after a 43-year-old woman was found carrying gunshots nearby, around 7:12 p.m. The victim was seriously injured but is in stable condition.
Another victim was reported injured there.
An intense search for one of the suspects appeared to be underway, as a Foxtrot helicopter was flying over their heads and officers were heard ordering one of them to “get out with your hands up.”
Police confirmed a checkpoint – meaning a confrontation with an armed suspect inside a house.
Special Forces officers remained in the area until 11 pm.
At 8:52 pm, a 29-year-old man was found shot in the leg on Wilkins Street near Fulton, in the southwest.
The victim sustained injuries that are not life threatening.
