Police: Four people injured in East Baltimore shooting, suspects flip car while fleeing

Four people were injured in a shooting in East Baltimore early Friday morning, police said, leaving a crime scene that stretched several blocks.

Officers responded to the 2500 block of E. Biddle St. around 2:30 a.m. for a Shot Spotter gunfire alert. They found two men and two women suffering from gunshot wounds at the scene, police said.


A 36-year-old man was shot in both his legs; a 27-year-old woman was shot in her foot; a 22-year-old man was shot in his leg; and an 18-year-old woman was shot in her groin, according to police.

The victims were transported to an area hospital for treatment.


A preliminary investigation found that the suspects fled in a vehicle after the shooting, driving south onto the 800 block of N. Caroline St. The getaway car collided with another vehicle, causing the suspect’s car to flip, police said.

Three suspects were taken into custody and are being interviewed by detectives, police said.

As the sun came up Friday, police were still investigating a crime scene that stretched to the 800 block of Montford Ave., nearly a half-mile from where officers initially responded. Madison Street was closed for several hours before reopening just after 7 a.m.

Citywide shooting detectives are investigating.
