Her name is Marion Daughton, and police say the 31-year-old is responsible for one of the triple shootings over the weekend in Baltimore.
 
While police said they've made more than 1,000 gun arrests this year, they're still struggling to wrangle the violence.
 
 
"It was a tough weekend in the city and we need some additional cases to go down just like this went down," said Baltimore City Police Commissioner Kevin Davis.
 
When Davis stepped to the podium Tuesday, he planned to announce a search for a new public enemy. Instead, police said Daughton had been captured just an hour earlier.
 
"From the looks of this criminal record, it was only a matter of time before Marion Daughton committed a crime that brought us here today," Davis said. 
 
 
It was after a triple shooting in the 2600 block of E. Monument at about 1 a.m. Monday in which police said a witness identified Daughton as one of the shooters.
 
 
A 34-year-old man died and two women were shot, one of which was pregnant. Police said the woman delivered her child later Monday.
 
The shooting was one of three other triple shootings over the weekend, spanning from Saturday to Monday morning. Twenty one people were shot and three were killed, all ranging in ages from 4 to 62.
 
 
A frustrated Davis asked for help solving them.
 
"I've got to wrap my head around the fact that I sat with a 4-year-old little girl when she was picking out the color of her cast," he said. 
 
Police are still searching for a second suspect in the E. Monument shooting.
