Colin Campbell, Baltimore Sun, July 23, 2015

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.
