Gunman Opens Fire During Vigil in Baltimore

Daily Mail and Associated Press, July 11, 2018

Police say five people attending a candlelight vigil in for a father of two killed in west Baltimore were shot when a gunman opened fire on the crowd.

Detective Donny Moses said in a phone interview that about 25 people had gathered about 6:30 p.m. Monday at Fulton and North avenues, where 24-year-old Jermaine Schofield was shot and killed early Sunday.

The gunman, who hasn’t been identified, walked into the crowd during the vigil and started shooting.


Moses says police were called to the scene and found two victims with gunshot wounds

Officers then got reports of three other people who went to local hospitals with gunshot wounds sustained at the same location.

All the injuries were described as non-life-threatening.

Police say witnesses weren’t able to give police a description of the shooter.


‘We only wanted to celebrate my son, and they’re shooting at us,’ Scofield told the Baltimore Sun.

‘What else is it you want? What else do you want? You got my son — and you’re still shooting at us because we have a candlelight vigil? When will it end?’
