It’s been a violent week in Baltimore. Since last Sunday, 50 people were shot and 15 of those victims died.

New numbers released early Monday accounted for three additional shootings that happened overnight.


These are the latest shootings in a string of violence over the week.

In northeast Baltimore, officers arrived to find two women suffering from gunshot wounds Saturday evening. {snip}


The victims, a 46-year-old and a 23-year-old, both died from their injuries.

On Friday, a 14-year-old was shot in the Coldstream-Homestead Montebello community. The teen was pronounced dead at the hospital. {snip}


Others injured include a 26-year-old shot in his back, an 18-year-old shot in his stomach and a 25-year-old man with a gunshot wound to his leg.

On Saturday morning in the 1700 block of West North Avenue, two more shooting victims — one man dead and a 30-year-old woman being treated at the hospital.

The violence began during Labor Day weekend.

Baltimore City’s police union tweeted again Monday saying the city is in crisis.

“In the last 10 days there have been 19 homicides & 43 failed murders (shootings) in Baltimore. Also there have been many stabbings/cuttings,” the FOP tweeted. “There is no discernible crime plan for the daily violence and the BPD is making no progress in filling the 500 vacancies.”
