Neighbors just a few houses down said they didn’t hear gunshots Sunday afternoon. Javon Curtis said he had been napping and was unaware of the crime scene outside until a reporter knocked on his door.

“This is East,” he said with a shrug, referring to East Baltimore. “We just have to live here and we have to mind our business.”

The homes at the complex at the corner of Monument and North Caroline have identical orange doors and share a playground in the middle of an off-street parking lot.

Curtis, who lives with his best friend and her children, said the adults in the house instruct the kids to get down when they hear gunshots and to wait until they see red and blue flashing lights to get up. They allow the kids to play at the playground behind their home but are hesitant to let them venture to the one across East Monument.

Detectives ask anyone with information about the shooting to call 410-396-2433.

One man was injured in a Friday afternoon shooting.
