Anyone with information was asked to call detectives at 410-396-2100.

Earlier, around 8:45 p.m., a 55-year-old woman sought treatment at a hospital for a gunshot wound to her leg.

Police spokesman Jeremy Silbert said it’s believed the victim and suspect knew each other.

Organizers of the Baltimore Ceasefire movement have called for a Mother’s Day weekend of no violence, with a series of events throughout the weekend to call for peace and remember victims of gun violence.
