Three teenagers and a 28-year-old man were shot Monday in separate incidents, Baltimore Police said.
According to police, officers were called around 2:15 p.m. to the 2300 block of E. Hoffman St. in the Broadway East neighborhood for a shooting.
When officers arrived, police said, they found a 14-year-old boy and 17-year-old boy suffering from non-life-threatening gunshot wounds.
Both teens were transported to area hospitals for treatment. Police did not provide their condition.
Baltimore Police Commissioner Michael Harrison was at the scene.
The shooting of the two teenagers reminded some residents about the danger that has persisted in the community.
Next to a corner store, a worker from Almonte Market was cleaning glass off the ground. She said the people who were shooting at the teenagers had also fired shots through the window of her van.
The woman, who asked to remain anonymous due to concern for her safety, said she has worked at the family-run business for 15 years to support her five children.
