16-year-old Edmondson-Westside High School student killed, five injured in weekend shootings in Baltimore

A 16-year-old boy is dead, and five people, including another teenage boy, were injured in shootings Saturday night and Sunday, Baltimore Police said.

The 16-year-old was found unresponsive by police responding to the sound of gunshots in the 1800 block of East 29th Street in the Coldstream-Homestead-Montebello neighborhood in East Baltimore at about 6:16 p.m. on Sunday, police said in a news release. He was declared dead at the scene.


Police identified him Monday as Andres Moreno Jr., who was a student at Edmondson-Westside High School, according to a Baltimore City Public Schools spokesperson. Moreno is the second Edmondson-Westside student killed by homicide in Baltimore this year — police are still seeking suspects in connection with a Jan. 4 shooting outside the school, which killed 16-year-old Deanta Dorsey and injured four other students.
