Mayor Stephanie Rawlings-Blake said Wednesday she visited the University of Maryland's Shock Trauma Center to support the family of a student stabbed at a West Baltimore high school.
"My focus is on checking on the student," the mayor said. "I was at Shock Trauma with [Schools CEO] Dr. [Gregory] Thornton, giving my support to the family. The school police has a lot of work to do to figure out what happened. It is tragic to think a student could come in with a knife and do that much damage. It certainly does not speak well for the condition of our young people."
Mayor Stephanie Rawlings-Blake stands by before speaking at the start of a 300 Man March from Hilton to Milton streets to speak out against violence in the city.
