Two people were killed and 28 others injured in a mass shooting at a block party in South Baltimore, Baltimore Police said.
An 18-year-old girl and a 20-year-old man were killed. The shooting occurred around 12:35 a.m. at the 800 block of Gretna Court in the Brooklyn Homes neighborhood.
Paramedics took nine injured people to hospitals, and 20 people walked into hospitals seeking treatment. Three people are in critical condition. The ages and conditions of the victims range, police said.https://archive.vn/rxKZG
As of now 28 wounded to 2 dead is a 14 to 1 wounded-killed ratio and that screams home boys lighting off some low level fireworks at each other.
Brooklyn Homes appears to be some sort of housing project, it is listed under the Housing Authority of Baltimore City and the pictures on Google maps at street level for Gretna Court and the general region all indicate “da projectz”.
I expect we will get the usual platitudes about gun control even though these were certainly illegally possessed and purchased firearms in heavily gun controlled Maryland and it is already illegal to murder people. Then the story will fade into the background, just more black violence static in the new American narrative.
