Over the Memorial Day weekend there have been 28 shootings in Baltimore. Of those shootings about nine of the people were shot dead.

According to CBS, “Baltimore Police say they responded to 6 shootings on Friday night, 7 on Saturday, 5 on Sunday and 11 by night fall on Monday.”

This also includes a nine year old boy who was shot in the leg. Others have been shot in the back, the head, and even their behind. This has been Baltimore’s deadliest month in 15 years.

There doesn’t seem to be any rhyme or reason behind the shootings. Just random people getting shot at.

A man who wished to remain anonymous told CBS, “It’s disturbing because you have the kids playing here and you know, bullets don’t have any names on them.”

The police have asked for help from the community to try and identify any of the shooters. Many people are scared because they do not want to be the next ones attacked.

The police have some surveillance footage that shows a person of interest, but the police have not been able to identify the man.  Hopefully, the people of Baltimore can find the people who have been hurting and killing people for no reason it seems.
