On May 26, at approximately 3:30 p.m., officers with the Baltimore Police Department (BPD) were patrolling at the intersection of North Eutaw Street and West Saratoga Street when they heard discharging from the surrounding area.

Officers then observed citizens running on the 200 block of North Eutaw Street and began investigating the discharging. As officers continued to canvass the area, they located four victims suffering from gunshot wounds and, moments later, were notified that another victim, the fifth victim, walked into an area hospital suffering from a gunshot wound. The victims’ ages are as follows: 55, 58, 41, 63, and 38-years-old.
