Fifteen people, including a 2-year-old child, were shot on another violent Saturday in Baltimore. And police are searching for an assailant who fired shots near a police officer after a triple shooting in Park Heights on Saturday night.

The triple shooting took place near the 5000 block of Palmer Ave., about two blocks south of the Pimlico Race Course, around 11:30 p.m. Saturday night, according to police.

Officers found two victims; both were taken to area hospitals for gunshot wounds.

Baltimore police spokesman Detective Jeremy Silbert said Sunday the one of the two victims died from his injuries. The other is still being treated and is expected to survive, he wrote.

A third victim arrived at an area hospital a short time later with a gunshot wound to the hand.

Police were investigating that shooting when a gunman in a white vehicle fired at least one shot. No one was injured, according to police spokesman Detective Jeremy Silbert. Silbert said police are investigating whether an officer was the intended target. It was unclear whether the white car was involved in the triple shooting.

Officers are still looking for the vehicle and its occupants.

In total, 15 people were shot Saturday, including a 2-year-old child. Of those shootings, three were fatal.

The boy was shot in the stomach in Baltimore early Saturday morning in what Police Commissioner Michael Harrison called “an act of road rage.” The federal Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives, which investigates serious gun crimes in the city, offered a $15,000 cash reward.

Police wrote on Facebook that the suspected shooter was driving a silver Mazda MPV and is a “heavy-set black male with dreadlocks.” Any occupants of the vehicle “are considered to be armed and dangerous at this time,” police added.

‪UPDATE Detectives believe the suspect vehicle involved in the shooting of a 2-year old child this morning is a silver Mazda MPV. ‬ A $15,000 reward is being offered in this case. Please share.
