Smith of the Baltimore Police Department. The shooting happened in the 500 block of Lyndhurst Street, the car, after being shot at ended up at Edmondson and Loudon Avenues.

Investigators told WMAR 2 News that a witness ran to a nearby police officer who was able to get the child transported to the hospital. "Give us some details; What did these guys look like, What was going on? What type of argument could there have been? Smith said at a news conference Thursday. She was in critical condition and unstable when she arrived at Shock Trauma. "I have a daughter. that could’ve been my daughter minding her business sitting in the back of a car that has nothing to do with it," said Moorehead. This particular Southwest neighborhood is no stranger to crime. Earlier Thursday, around 3 a.m, along the 500 block of Denision Street, a man was shot and killed. In fact, there have been a number of deadly shootings in the area this year alone. "I'm here to tell the bad guys basically we’re coming, we’re coming. enough is enough. That’s it."
