BALTIMORE – Three gunmen shot and wounded eight people, including a three-year-old girl, on an east Baltimore street Saturday night, police said, adding the suspects fled and the victims were all expected to survive.
The shooting erupted outside some rowhouses about 8:30 p.m. after the three armed men converged on the group from different points, Baltimore Police Commissioner Kevin Davis said at a news conference.
Davis, who went to the scene, said the shooting was a premeditated act of retaliatory violence in response to a Labor Day weekend shooting in which a man was fatally shot and two women were wounded, one of them pregnant. He did not immediately explain how investigators believed the shootings were linked. (AP)
