Quadruple shooting in Baltimore kills a teen

A 16-year-old from Baltimore was shot dead sometime before 1 AM this morning, the Baltimore Sun reports. The teen has not been publicly identified.

Along with the teen, three other people were injured in the same shooting incident, which occurred in the 3500 block of West Garrison Boulevard, which is on the west side of the city, according to a report on WBAL-TV (NBC affiliate).

The teen was shot in the chest, a 19-year-old man was shot in the hand, a 21-year-old man was shot in the arm, and the head of a 22-year-old man was grazed by a bullet.

The teen’s death is included in the 168 homicides reported so far this year in Baltimore. Last year on this date, only 106 people had been killed in homicidal attacks, WBAL-TV reported.

If you know who shot these people, call the police at (410) 396-2100.
