“Listen, we have to get serious as a city as a community about stopping violence. We can’t have anyone getting shot, let alone kids. It is unacceptable that we have young people getting shot,” City Council President, Brandon Scott said.” We have to do more as a city government, I’m going to push the Police Department to do better, to serve warrants to people that need them. We’re going to ask the state for help. They could be doing more to help us, especially with people on parole or probation and making sure people are reported.”
Anyone with information about any of the shootings is asked to call police or Metro Crime Stoppers at 866-7LOCKUP, or text a tip to 443-902-4824.
