Baltimore Police are investigating a shooting in Southwest Baltimore that left a 33-year-old woman dead Thursday morning.

By 10 a.m., homicide detectives were investigating a scene riddled with evidence markers by two cars. There was a large pool of dried blood nearby. A small red bike was left abandoned off to the side near where the shooting occurred.

About an hour later, the fire department arrived to spray clean the crime scene on the shady street.

One woman ran through the crime scene, crying and screaming “Where are the kids?” Officers flanked her and escorted her to the sidewalk outside the yellow crime scene tape. The two officers comforted the woman as she vomited between cries.

Residents in the area said the neighborhood is usually quiet and calm — not even children make noise outside, one woman said.

Detectives are asking anyone with information about the shooting to call 410-396-2100 or 1-866-7Lockup. Tips can also be texted to 443-902-4824.
