Monday’s shootings follow a weekend during which five people were killed in gun violence in Baltimore, including two teenagers shot near Morgan State University’s campus Friday night. There were also several non-fatal shootings, including one early Sunday morning near Canton Square that left two men injured. City councilman Zeke Cohen said two groups of people were fighting when an individual withdrew a gun and fired. Monday morning, police announced that they’d arrested a suspect in the shooting Sunday.
