The man was shot just after a Baltimore Ceasefire 365 weekend ended. The anti-violence initiative urges “nobody kill anybody” and holds various events like prayer walks and mosaic workshops. A Ceasefire study found that there has been an average 52% reduction in shootings on Ceasefire weekends, which are held four times a year.

Over this Ceasefire weekend, five people were shot — one fatally.

Police also released the names of three recent homicide victims.
