Four shot in East Baltimore Wednesday

One person was gravely wounded in a quadruple shooting in East Baltimore Wednesday afternoon, police said.

At about 12:07 p.m., police were called to Broadway and Eager streets in the city's Gay Street neighborhood where a 19-year-old woman had been shot in the leg.


She was taken to an area hospital where her condition is unknown.

While on the scene, officers were told three other victims had arrived at hospitals with gunshot wounds. Those victims include a 25-year-old man shot in the shoulder, a 30-year-old man shot in the head, and an 18-year-old man shot in the shoulder, police said.

Due the the condition of the 30-year-old man, homicide detectives were notified, police said.

Police spokesman T.J. Smith said the shooting may be retaliatory.

A stray bullet struck the Kennedy Krieger Institute Outpatient Center in the 800 block of Broadway, said Stacey Bollinger, a spokeswoman for the institute. The institute is working with community partners to strengthen neighborhood security, she said.

"Ensuring the safety and well-being of our patients, visitors and staff is of the utmost importance," she said in a statement. "We are extremely thankful that no one at our facilities was injured. Our thoughts are with those in the community who were impacted by today's events."

Citywide shooting detectives ask that anyone with information call police at 410-396-2221 or Metro Crime Stoppers at 1-866-7lockup.
