Three juveniles — a 13-year-old boy, a 15-year old boy and a 16-year-old girl — were shot with nonfatal gunshot wounds in the 800 block of N. Glover St., in Madison-Eastend, East Baltimore, Wednesday night, police said.
At least seven people, including three juveniles — a 13-year-old boy, a 15-year old boy and a 16-year-old girl — were shot in Baltimore Wednesday night, police said.
Officers were called at 10:13 p.m. to the 800 block of N. Glover St., in Madison-Eastend, where the three teenagers were found with nonfatal gunshot wounds.
Interim Commissioner Kevin Davis said police have no motive for the shooting but have been given information by the community that he hopes will lead detectives to the shooter or shooters. He said police "may be in a position tonight" to make an arrest.
As of Thursday morning, no arrests or motives had been announced.
The 13-year-old boy was shot in the chest, the 15-year-old was shot in the chest and shoulder, and the 16-year-old girl was shot in the leg, police said. All were taken to area hospitals, police said.
"It is certainly unacceptable for this community to see three teenagers being shot on a beautiful summer night like this," Davis said. "It's my impression that they've had enough."
