Baltimore City police SWAT arrests attempted murder suspect

After a 25-year-old man was shot and wounded in Northeast Baltimore, police said residents pointed the arriving officers to an apartment building where they said two or three men had gone after the gunfire.

Heavily armed members of the Police Department's tactical team went into the building in the 5900 block of Radecke Ave., in Cedonia. Police said the officers not only found the men hiding in a woman's apartment, but found a gun hidden in an air vent in a bathroom.

One of the men was arrested in the shooting, which occurred on Friday. Police said they charged Mark Peters, 23, of the 4700 block of Parkside Drive, with attempted first-degree murder and several handgun violations.

Police said they knew of no motive for the shooting, which occurred about 9 p.m., and wounded a 25-year-old man.
