Mayor Brandon Scott called the killings “unfortunate and unacceptable.”
Baltimore City Mayor Brandon M. Scott and Police Commissioner Michael Harrison on the latest gun violence in the city.
“The significance of what we have to do in our city, focusing again on the folks committing the violence and violent repeat offenders in these small groups, focusing again on guns that are coming into our city, but also focusing on our ability to deal with addiction and all the other things that are helping to drive violence in the city.”
”We are working constantly through having smart deployment strategies, putting officers where we know they need to be, based on patterns and trends of crimes,” Police Commissioner Michael Harrison said at a news conference Monday.
“And we’re working to identify those bad actors who are pulling the triggers and who are carrying the guns. But we need help from our community.”
